"Molecular Modeling and Drug Design"
14 - 16 December 2012
Bioinformatics has created an immense opportunity for researchers to design novel leads and therapeutic molecules. Today, computational techniques used in drug discovery process have drastically reduced down the time and cost of drug development. The In-silico studies have enhanced our understanding of molecular properties and the specific behavior of drug-receptor interaction at the molecular level.
This workshop focuses on the current techniques of Molecular Modeling and Drug designing that are being used by researchers for predicting the 3D structure of Proteins and in designing of drug molecules through guided practical training. For lab exercise, various online resources and commercial software will be used in training such as Accelrys Discovery Studio, Modeller, Arguslab, DeepView, Marvin Draw and Molinspiration.
The workshop is self-contained and does not assume any special knowledge of computer programming or Bioinformatics.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
The participants of the course may be students, research scholars, faculty and industry personnel with background in Life Sciences and/or Information Technology. The workshop is selfcontained and does not assume any special knowledge of the subject.
Besides BISR faculty, eminent guest speakers from renowned Bioinformatics Centres of India will deliver lectures and conduct demonstration on various aspects on Bioinformatics.
