Bioinformatics Workshop - Friday, July 26, 2013
RI-INBRE Bioinformatics Core will organize a bioinformatics workshop on Molecular Modeling using AutoDock on Friday, July 26, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM.
This workshop, led by Dr. Roberta S. King, will introduce the use of the major molecular docking program Autodock 4 for biomedical scientists.
Two major learning goals will be addressed: (1) the scope of projects suitable for analysis with Autodock 4, and (2) the tedious activities
absolutely necessary for starting a project. Examples of prior and current research conducted at URI will be described. Accessory software
for setup and analysis will also be covered.
Interested students are eligible for enrollment in the Fall 2013 course, BPS455/555 Protein Molecular Modeling for Biomedical Sciences, 3 credits.
This workshop consists of two sessions:
1. 09:00 AM - 10:30 AM :General Introduction to Molecular Modeling
2. 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM: Practical Use of Autodock 4.x
This workshop will be held in a computer lab with the required software installed on the machines. However, you may bring your laptop if you have Autodock installed and running.
If you have any question, please contact the Bioinformatics Core Coordinator Dr. Hany Alashwal at email@example.com..
Space is limited, therefore RI-INBRE will only be able to accommodate the first 15 registrants for each session.
A series of Bioinformatics workshops will follow covering topics of greater interest to the research community at the University of Rhode Island and other RI-INBRE institutions.
