MDAnalysis is one of the most widely-used Python libraries for the analysis of biomolecular simulations and structures, underpinning analysis workflows in academia and industry. In this talk, we will introduce MDAnalysis, showcase popular core features as well as exciting new developments in the recent 2.0 release, such as converters for the RDKit and OpenMM libraries, and workflows for parallel analysis. We will discuss future directions for improving and expanding the MDAnalysis ecosystem, with a focus on improved performance, interoperability, and enabling the development of downstream toolkits.

Oliver Beckstein

Oliver is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics at Arizona State University. His research group uses and develops computational methods to better understand the molecular mechanisms of biological processes. Currently, a special focus is on the quantitative prediction of the function and activity of membrane proteins such as active transporters. He also has broad interests in computational methods and software development, such as the open-source libraries MDAnalysis, alchemlyb, and GromacsWrapper.
