About the School

This workshop is a continuation of the computational biophysics workshops organized at Sabanci and TOBB Economy and Technology Universities from 2009-2012. The aim of the workshop is to introduce students and researchers in the field to new developments in computational description of protein interactions. Topics to be covered are: docking methods for binding of ligands and proteins, molecular dynamics simulations of complex structures, free energy simulation methods for determination of absolute and relative binding free energies . Lectures will be followed by practical sessions where students will be tutored on the programs introduced in the lectures and how they are used in practice. There will also be brain storming sessions where students will talk about their research problems, and feedback will be provided for resolving any difficulties they encounter and for future progress.


National applicants\' local expenses will be totally covered by our state projects. According to the bilateral agreements of ITAP, participants from China, Taiwan, India, South Korea, Georgia and Bulgaria are eligible for complete support covering the local expenses.
