School on "Biomolecular Simulations"

November 6 - 16, 2007

The scope of the school is to introduce methods and tools in setting up molecular simulations in context of biomolecules. Using molecular dynamics methodology as the central concept, the school aims at providing a systematic way to setup the systems, simulating them, analysis techniques to extract and visually represent some of the interesting properties of biological systems. Some of the biological systems that may be explored will include DNA, ion channels, lipid membranes etc. Familiarity with basic thermodynamics, UNIX and basic programming will be assumed. However the school will have introductory sessions on aspects of molecular simulations such as molecular dynamics methodology, force fields, ensemble representation etc. The morning sessions will have lectures introducing concepts and methods and the afternoon sessions will have computational exercises. The school will be based on freely available software NAMD (www.ks.uiuc.edu) and VMD. The school will also include lectures on applications of computer simulations to biological problems of current interest.
