Structural Bioinformatics and Drug Discovery
This course provides aspects of structural bioinformatics and deals with computational applications in drug discovery. It starts with a review of protein modeling and then quickly moves into computational techniques with a special emphasis on drug discovery context. Example topics include protein homology modeling, ligand-protein molecular docking, and other prediction methods. The course meetings embrace a blend of lectures and practical sessions. The coursework includes readings, assignments, and ends with a project presentation by students.
