First Hands-on Workshop on Biomolecular Simulations
Research Centre for Modeling and Simulation is organizing four days hands-on workshop on "Bio-Molecular Simulations” at Super Computing Research and Education Center (ScREC), National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) from May 04 to May 07, 2015. The participants will learn and implement key concepts in Bio-molecular Simulations.
Special emphasis will be given to the hands-on training of computational program packages to perform the following;
1- Energy minimization on the Potential Energy Surface (PES)
2- Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations
3- Normal Mode Analysis (NMA)
4- Conformational Transitions in Proteins
After completing the workshop, the participants would be able to
Understand the key theoretical concepts underlying computational methods
Run and execute bio-molecular simulations using Molecular Mechanics program package
Remotely use RCMS Super Computing facility
Perform energy minimization, MD simulations and NMA
Search for minimum energy pathways on the high dimensional PES
Workshop will be conducted by Dr. Farooq Ahmad Kiani and a team of trained research associates. Dr. Kiani is currently working as Associate Professor at RCMS. He has more then 11 years of teaching and research experience at the Heidelberg University in Germany.
04-07 May, 2015 Timing: 10 am to 5 pm
