Additional information

The worshop will introduce HADDOCK, (High Ambiguity Driven protein-protein DOCKing) which is an information-driven flexible docking approach for the modeling of biomolecular complexes, and PMX which is a service for users who need to do free energy calculations. PMX utilizes the Gromacs classical molecular dynamics simulation engine to perform calculations at the background. The workshop also covers advanced usage of Gromacs itself in particular on HPC environment.

Upon registration participants are asked for special topics they are interested in which potentially could be covered at the workshop.

The event is organized in collaboration with BioExcel and CSC.

Registration will open shortly!
