Subject: 10.07.12 "Hands-on" Workshop on Computational Biophysics, July 12-16, 2010, at San Diego
The Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group, NIH Resource for
Macromolecular Modeling and Bioinformatics ( at the
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (, presents a

  "Hands-On" Workshop on Computational Biophysics

to be held July 12-16, 2010 at the National Resource for Automated 
Molecular Microscopy on the Scripps Research Institute campus in San Diego,
California, USA. Application, selection, and notification of participants 
is on-going through July 2, 2010.

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. 
Enrollment limited to 35 participants. The workshop will be held July 12-16,
2010. All participants are required to bring their own laptop, prepared for 
use in workshop tutorial sessions. Course materials will be provided.

The workshop is sponsored by the Nationaal Biomedical Computation Resource
(, the National Resource for Automated Molecular Microscopy
(, and the NIH National Center for Research Resources 

We look forward to receiving your application.
