Computational Protein Structure Analysis and Structural Genomics

One-day workshop

June 1, 2001

This intensive workshop is designed for scientists with limited prior
experience in computational molecular biology. The course covers
theoretical
approaches, techniques and computational tools for protein structure
analysis,
classification, and prediction. The workshop will consist of lectures
and
hands-on computer laboratory sessions.

The workshop provides an overview of methods and algorithms for protein
structure analysis. Students will acquire knowledge of fundamental
principles
as well as practical skills necessary to use modern computational tools
for
protein structure analysis. The topics include protein geometry and
topology,
3D structure and structure classification databases, knowledge-based
protein
modeling, and structural genomics.

Instructor: Iosif Vaisman, Associate Professor of Bioinformatics,
School of Computational Sciences, George Mason University

The course will be taught using state-of-the-art training facilities at
the Prince William Campus of George Mason University.
