Summer School/Workshop on Protein Structure, Function and Dynamics

As attested by the award of the 2013 Chemistry Nobel prize, computational methods are becoming increasingly more important in description of protein structure, function and dynamics. Continuous increase in computational power, together with introduction of new computational methods have enabled realistic description of proteins and their interactions. The newly-established predictive power of computational methods means that the synergy between experiment and theory, taken granted in physics and chemistry, can now be exploited in molecular biology. The aim of these workshops is to introduce the new computational methods to young researchers through lectures and practical sessions. Description of protein structure, function and dynamics via molecular dynamics simulations and other bioinformatical methods form the main agenda of the workshop. The target audience are the researchers working in biophysics, biochemistry, molecular biology and pharmacology, who are interested in using computational methods in their research projects.
