Event Name

Computational and Structural Biology. The 23rd Jerusalem School in Life Sciences

Start Date 10th Jan 2016
End Date 14th Jan 2016
Description The School aims to focus on the ongoing synergy between Computational and Structural Biology. It features a great team of speakers from both fields, including three Nobel laureates. Participants in the School will become familiar with the principles of multiple methods such as: X-ray crystallography and Electron Microscopy of very large structures, Molecular Dynamics, Computational Protein Design, QM/MM, Structural Classification, and Biophysics. In parallel, the state-of-the-art applications of these techniques to outstanding biological problems will be presented.
