Course Aim

Computational methods are providing increasing amounts of insight into fundamental properties of molecular interactions. Furthermore they can be used as a complementary method to many biophysical techniques and as such are useful tools for many experimental scientists. This course aims to provide an introduction to some of these computational methods. The emphasis is on learning how to actually perform some of these methods and whilst it is not possible to become an instant expert, attendees should, at the end of the course, be in a better position to know what in principle is possible and where to seek further information. Because of the practical nature of the sessions, attendees should attend the course in its entirety.
