Thank you to everyone who contacted us about MolSoft's (www.molsoft.com) 
   September workshop entitled "Protein Structure and Drug Discovery". 
The workshop is now completely full and has a waiting list. Due to the 
high demand for ICM training, we have scheduled our 2008 workshop dates. 
We expect these workshops to fill up as well, so please register as soon 
as possible to reserve your place at any of the following workshops:

January 17th-18th, 2008
May 1st-2nd, 2008 (Coincides with the end of the CHI Drug Discovery
Chemistry Conference in La Jolla)
September 25th-26th, 2008

See www.molsoft.com/training.html for more information.

Our workshops are suitable for chemists and biologists who would like to
learn more about computational drug discovery and bioinformatics. No
prior knowledge in this field is required to participate. All workshops
are presented by Prof. Ruben Abagyan (The Scripps Research Institute)
and Dr. Maxim Totrov (MolSoft) and occasional guest speakers.

The workshops will consist of lectures, demonstrations and “hands-on”
computational experiments and cover the following topics:

- Sequence and Protein Structure Analysis
- Protein Modeling and Simulations
- Structure Validation and Optimization
- Ligand Binding Site Prediction
- Small Molecule Docking and Virtual Ligand Screening
- Structure-based development of target-specific compound libraries
- Cheminformatics, chemical clustering, searching, superposition ...
- QSAR, machine learning
- Protein-Protein Docking

We will showcase and train you in the use of many of our new
developments in computational chemistry and biology including:
- fully-flexible receptor-ligand docking
- new structure and ligand based screening tools
- automated model building into density
- atomic property field chemical superposition
- fast machine learning tools for QSAR
- pharmacophore drawing and searching
- compound library enumeration tools
- screen-grabbing movie making

“The objective of this training workshop is to help chemists and
biologists solve challenging problems in the area of drug discovery by
efficient use of the science and technology present in ICM molecular
modeling tools.” Prof. Ruben Abagyan (The Scripps Research Institute and
Co-Founder of Molsoft LLC)
