Description

EMBO Practical Course on Computational Structural Biology - from data to structure to function

Venue: European Bioinformatics Institute, CB10 1SD, United Kingdom

Overview

This course aims to teach computational aspects of protein structure determination, validation and analysis. It will cover the background of different structural biology techniques and provide hands-on experience in building a model from X-ray diffraction data. In addition, participants will learn how to critically assess the quality of data and models, and gain expertise in the integration and visualisation of data from different techniques, thus enabling the analysis of protein structure data for functional relationships. The importance of protein structure to drug discovery will also be illustrated with sessions dedicated to small-molecules, protein-ligand docking and model validation.

Audience

This course aims to teach computational aspects of protein structure determination, validation and analysis to PhD students and post-docs working on the collection and analysis of protein structure data. The course will be highly interactive and will include many practical sessions. Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring their own data and ideas of work to be addressed during these sessions.
