Three-Day National Workshop
"Bioinformatics Applications in Modeling & Drug Design"
15 - 17 February 2018
The computational modeling and in-silico drug design techniques have created immense opportunities for researchers in designing novel therapeutic agents. State-of-the-art bioinformatics approach helps in the deep understanding of molecular properties and the specific behavior of receptor-ligand interaction at the molecular level. The use of in-silico approaches is essential component of drug discovery in major pharma industries and its implementation has also drastically reduced down the time and cost of drug development
This workshop focuses on the current techniques of Molecular Modeling and Drug designing that is 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 eminent guest speakers and domain experts will deliver lectures and conduct demonstrations.
For lab exercise, various open source and commercial software will be used in training such as Autodock, Modeller, Arguslab, DeepView, 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.
