FFEA Workshop

Start Date 13th Jul 2017
End Date

This will be a hands-on workshop on the new software tool Fluctuating Finite Element Analysis (FFEA), which calculates dynamic trajectories for flexible biomolecules directly from cryo-EM/ET density maps. FFEA aims to provide an equivalent simulation tool for the EMDB as atomistic MD simulations have for the PDB. This approach uniquely uses volumetric meshes rather than atomistic co-ordinates as input such that it can model protein dynamics, protein-protein interactions, conformational switching between known configurational states and can be mapped back to atomistic co-ordinates, where these are available. This workshop is ideal for biomolecular simulators who would like to make full use of cryo-EM data in their modelling, or for experimentalists who would like to gain new theoretical insight into the dynamic behaviour of the  structures they observe.
