About the Workshop
Computational techniques are an integral core of biomolecular research. Software applications provide fundamental support to experimental studies in biochemistry, biotechnology and bioinformatics. Pharmaceutical companies and the agricultural sector rely on designing molecules through high-throughput screening, docking and molecular dynamics simulations, and to this end are also applying free energy calculations on a large scale. Both X-ray crystallography and NMR increasingly apply automated pipelines for structure determination, and single-particle cryo-EM relies on capturing >100,000 images to computationally fit structures from the computed electron density.
This field is rapidly growing with numerous topical events being held globally. This EMBO Workshop is organising the Advances and Challenges in Biomolecular Simulations conference to establish itself as the main venue for bringing together the top researchers in the fields of biomolecular simulations, integrative modelling, free energy and drug design, workflows and automation and data integration.
About EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).
Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
