Hi all,

>From 14-18 November, an EMBO Practical Course on "Computational structural 
biology - from data to structure to function" will be held at the EBI in 
Cambridge (UK). The course is organised by James Watson, Rosemary Wilson, 
Gerard Kleywegt, Victor Lamzin, Christine Orengo and Gert Vriend.

The course will address computational aspects of protein structure 
determination, validation and analysis. Students will learn to critically 
examine and validate data from the Protein Data Bank and use a variety of 
analysis tools to identify similarities that can help identify function. The 
course will also provide an introductory session to homology modelling for use 
with proteins less amenable to structure determination. Finally, the 
importance of protein structure to drug development will be illustrated with a 
day focussing on protein interactions, small molecules, chemoinformatics and 
docking. The course is aimed at PhD students and post-docs working on the 
collection and analysis of protein structure data. The goal is to provide them 
with insight into the protein structure determination process, how to 
critically assess the quality of data from models and also provide expertise 
in the analysis of protein structure data with a view to predicting protein
