Subject: 05.11.28 COMPUTATIONAL BIOPHYSICS WORKSHOP, PITTSBURGH, PA
PITTSBURGH SUPERCOMPUTING CENTER
BIOMEDICAL INITIATIVE WORKSHOP

This workshop is funded by a grant to the PSC from the NIH National Center
for Research Resources. The grant provides tuition, hotel, supercomputing
time, and workshop materials for US academic participants.


               COMPUTATIONAL BIOPHYSICS WORKSHOP
               Nov. 28 - Dec. 1
               Application Deadline:  October 17
               Primary Instructor: Prof. Klaus Schulten (UIUC)
               www.psc.edu/biomed/training/workshops/2005/NAMD/index.html

The workshop will explore physical models and computational approaches
used for the simulation of biological systems and the investigation of
their function at an atomic level. The course will be based on case
studies including the properties of membranes and membrane proteins,
mechanisms of molecular motors, trafficking in the living cell through
water and ion channels, and signaling pathways. Relevant physical
concepts, mathematical techniques, and computational methods will be
introduced, including force fields and algorithms used in molecular
modeling, molecular dynamics simulations on parallel computers and steered
molecular dynamics simulations.
The workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral
researchers in computational and/or biophysical fields who seek to extend
their research skills to include computational and theoretical expertise,
as well as other researchers interested in theoretical and computational
biophysics. Theory sessions in the morning will be followed by hands-on
computer labs in the afternoon in which students will be able to set up
and run simulations.
