Computational Protein Structure Analysis and Structural Genomics
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,
