Workshop on Open-Source Tools in Chemistry

27 May 2021 14:00-16:00, United Kingdom

All scientists working in chemistry need software tools for accessing, handling and storing chemical information, or performing molecular modelling and computational chemistry. There is now a wealth of open-source tools to help in these activities; however, many are not as well-known as commercial offerings. These workshops offer a unique opportunity for attendees to try out a range of open-source software packages for themselves with expert tuition in different aspects of chemistry. Information is provided for attendees to install the packages to run on their own laptops.

This is the third of four two-hour sessions, which will be run on Zoom. The workshops are free to attend, but registration is required.

GNINA 1.0: Molecular Docking with Deep Learning with David Koes, University of Pittsburgh

The use of docking to predict ligand binding to a receptor is now well established. This workshop will cover docking and structure-based virtual screening, with an introduction to the theory followed by practical examples. More information about GNINA 1.0 can be found here:

Upcoming and final session:
