Event Name: UIUC 2012 Computational Biophysics Workshops
Event Date(s): Monday, October 22, 2012 to Friday, October 26, 2012
Event Location: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 405 N Mathews Ave, Urbana, Illinois, U.S.A.
Description: The workshop will explore physical models and computational approaches used for the simulation of biological systems and the investigation of their function at an atomic level. The course will be based on case studies including the properties of membranes and membrane proteins, mechanisms of molecular motors, trafficking in the living cell through water and ion channels, and signaling pathways. Relevant physical concepts, mathematical techniques, and computational methods will be introduced, including force fields and algorithms used in molecular modeling, molecular dynamics simulations on parallel computers and steered molecular dynamics simulations.
