BioExcel CoE series of educational webinars for computational biomolecular research. The series cover broad topics related to the latest development of the supported software packages; their application to modelling and simulation; best practices for performance tuning and efficient usage on HPC and novel architectures; introductory tutorials for entry level users and much more.

Webinar: BioSimSpace – filling the gaps between molecular simulation codes (2018-06-27)

 BioExcel’s webinar series continue with a presentation by Chris Woods, Bristol Register Abstract BioSimSpace (https://biosimspace.org) is a flagship software project from the CCP-BioSim (https://ccpbiosim.ac.uk) and HEC-BioSim (https://hecbiosim.ac.uk) biomolecular modelling communities. The project aims to make it easier for researchers to develop, share and re-use biomolecular simulation workflow nodes. The […]

Webinar: Furthering our understanding of Antibody Structure space: the Pistoia Alliance AbVance project (2018-06-13)

 BioExcel’s webinar series continue with a presentation by Sebastian Kelm and Richard Norman   Register Abstract Biologic drugs are expected to contribute to more than half of therapeutic product sales by 2022, thus overtaking traditional small molecule drugs in terms of market share. Analysts predict that the global biologics market […]

Webinar: High-Confidence Protein−Ligand Complex Modeling by NMR Guided Docking Enables Early Hit Optimization (2018-05-10)

 BioExcel’s webinar series continue with a presentation by Andrew Proudfoot, Novartis Register Abstract Structure-based drug design is routinely used in modern day drug discovery. However, the success of this process is very much dependent upon the ability to generate protein-ligand co-structures.  While NMR and EM can be used to […]

Webinar: MC_DNA: A web server for the detailed study of the structure and dynamics of DNA and chromatin fibers. (2018-04-11)

 BioExcel’s webinar series continue with a presentation by Jürgen Walther, IRB Barcelona Register Abstract MC_DNA is a new web tool for the three-dimensional simulation of free DNA andmedium-sized chromatin fibers. The program implements a Monte Carlo algorithm based on amesoscopic model, using a tetramer-dependent base-pair step model fitted to […]
