ACS Short Course
Computational Chemistry and Computer-Assisted Drug Design: Practical
Approaches

230th ACS National Meeting
Washington Convention Center, Washington, DC
Friday-Saturday, August 26-27, 2005

This introductory level course is designed for organic chemists,
pharmaceutical chemists, and biochemists who are interested in learning
more about computational and combinatorial methods, or scientists who
need to develop a working knowledge of the fundamentals and need to
understand the concepts and terminology of this rapidly developing area.
