Subject: 07.10.04 Molecular Docking, Complexity, and Optimization, Biotec TUD, Dresden, Germany
The molecular docking problem is to find the best orientation of two molecules to each other. The interaction can be modeled by a scoring function that includes terms describing the inter- and intramolecular energies. The number of degrees of freedom strongly depends on the complexity of the docking approach. The resulting fitness landscape is highly irregular. Due to this complexity sophisticated optimization algorithms are needed. Bio-inspired methods are known to be valuable tools to successfully explore such search spaces. In order to gain a deeper insight to biochemical processes and to support the finding of potent drugs, these methods are of great importance in academic and industrial research. Unfortunately, there is a lack of communication between the communities from computer and life sciences involved in these topics. This event is intended to overcome this and to serve as a platform for exchange of knowledge and for discussion. The focus is not limited on original work but also on introductory talks from the different fields of research. The workshop is a satellite conference to the European Conference on Complex Systems (www.trafficforum.org/dresden). contact: Dr. Carsten Baldauf mdoc07|*|biotec.tu-dresden.de http://pacosy.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/MDCO-2007NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
