Courses - 8th Meeting on Molecular Simulations

December 7th: 10:00 – 13:00

Illustrating the Drug Design Process

Goal: The aim of this workshop is to introduce attendees to commonly in silico drug design methods, such as molecular geometry optimization, pharmacophore modeling, protein-ligand docking simulations, homology modeling and virtual screnning. Freely available software and web servers are selected, which are easily implemented on Windows OS Computers.

The following free programs must be previously installed (On Windows OS):

Departamento de Química, Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana – Iztapalapa

December 7th: 14:30 – 17:30

Molecular Simulations of Biological Systems

Goal: The purpose of the course is to present the basic elements of biological systems simulations. Attendees will be capable to build protein-ligand or protein-membrane systems to be simulated by molecular dynamics.

– Molecular Dynamics fundamental equations
– Building simulations of biological systems
– Free energy calculations
