Protein modelling and its applications in current science

6—7 April 2017

Keele University, Keele, Staffordshire, UK

Biochemical Society Training Event

Molecular modelling can progress challenging projects by providing theoretical protein structures and proposing interactions with small molecules.
The purpose of this training event is to familiarise participants with computational programmes to generate 3D models of proteins where no structural data is available. An emphasis will be placed on critically evaluating the usefulness of models and modelling in general for solving scientific problems. The course is aimed at early career scientists, such as PhD students and PostDocs, and established scientists who are interested in applying computational approaches to their research in the fields of protein science, molecular health, medicinal chemistry and structural biology. The interplay between lecture, practical work and discussion will ensure a stimulating and relaxed learning environment.
Participants should have basic knowledge of:
·         Molecular viewer PyMOL and Jalview
·         Text-file editing in Linux
·         Linux operating system
A tutorial will be made available in advance for participants who would like to brush up on their knowledge or get familiar with PyMOL, Jalview and Linux. In-depth computational knowledge is not required.
