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
approaches, techniques and computational tools for protein structure
classification, and prediction. The workshop will consist of lectures
hands-on computer laboratory sessions.
The workshop provides an overview of methods and algorithms for protein
structure analysis. Students will acquire knowledge of fundamental
as well as practical skills necessary to use modern computational tools
protein structure analysis. The topics include protein geometry and
3D structure and structure classification databases, knowledge-based
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.
