This three day classroom based MSD Skills training course suitable for all postgraduate research students and early career researchers wanting to gain the practical skills needed for effective computational biochemistry.

This course takes place over three days:

16 December 2019 @ 10:00 - 17:00

17 December 2019 @ 10:00 - 17:00

18 December 2019 @ 10:00 - 13:00

Venue information for each session of this course is available in 'My Resources' in CoSY once you have booked on this course. Booking confirmation and course reminder emails will provide you with the link to 'My Resources'.


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.
