Three-Day National Workshop
"Current Approaches in Molecular Modeling of Proteins"
8 - 10 January 2016
Bioinformatics has created an unprecedented opportunities for researchers
to design novel leads and therapeutic molecules. Today, the computational
techniques implemented for molecular modeling and drug design are very
promising and, as a result, have immensely reduced down the time and the
cost of experimental research. 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 current techniques of molecular modeling of proteins that are being practiced by researchers involved in bio-molecular modeling and designing of specific chemical compounds. Each concept will be covered through guided practical training. For lab exercise, various open source and commercial software will be used in training such as Autodock, Modeller, Arguslab, DeepView, Marvin Draw, Molinspiration and Discovery studio. 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.
