Overview Overview

This course has been created for people who want to understand the basics of structural bioinformatics including protein-ligand docking and virtual screening, i.e.:

  • Researchers whose main area or expertise is not a structural bioinformatics, but they want to broaden their knowledge in this field
  • Computer programmers who are going to deal with structural data (crystal structures, PDB format files, modeling pipelines) or with docking/virtual screening software
  • Biology, biotechnology and bioinformatics students who want to expand their knowledge into structural bioinformatics and molecular interactions

This course is more like a workshop. The trainer introduces theoretical bases as well as basic pipeline for structure modeling and molecular interactions.
