Protein modelling

About the course

Molecular modelling techniques are well-established tools for rational drug design. This two-day course will cover the background for:
  • Computer representations of molecules
  • Protein structure
  • Homology modelling
  • Molecular dynamics, and
  • Protein-ligand docking studies.
The workshops will include presentation material together with hands-on experience of the above topics where protein models and ligand structures will be prepared and docking studies conducted.

This course is suitable for non-specialists who need to interact with molecular modellers or understand molecular modelling information.
