This is a beginner-to-intermediate level, in-depth workshop for users with no prior experience using Molecular Dynamics tools. However, participants should have some experience working with the command line.
Participants will be guided through AMBER and NAMD software for preparing and performing simulations of biomolecular systems, VMD for visualizing trajectories and manipulating PDB files, and Python for analyzing and plotting simulation data.
The workshop will be conducted in four two-hour hands-on sessions over two weeks.
April 4, 2022, 1:00 - 4:00hrs (Atlantic time): Practical considerations for Molecular Dynamics
April 6, 2022, 1:00 - 4:00hrs (Atlantic time): Visualizing Structures with VMD
April 11, 2022, 1:00 - 4:00hrs (Atlantic time): Molecular Dynamics with AMBER and NAMD
April 13, 2022, 1:00 - 4:00hrs (Atlantic time): Analyzing Molecular Dynamics Data with PYTRAJ
- Previous experience working with the command line (Linux).
- You need to have a laptop with a Mac, Linux or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc) on which you have administrative privileges, as you will need to pre-load specific software packages.
This session will be delivered online.
Participants must register using their institutional / organizational email address (not a personal email, ie. gmail).
Connections details for the session as well as further preparation information will be sent out prior to the session.
