Molecular Modeling with Schrödinger-Suite Workshop @ LRZ

Date: Wednesday, October 17, 2018 09:00 - Thursday, October 18, 2018 17:00
LRZ Building, University campus Garching, near Munich

The LRZ Staff together with Schrödinger software experts will conduct the "Molecular Modelling with Schrödinger software suite" workshop 2018 at the LRZ from Oct. 17 to Oct. 18. The workshop will cover fundamental principles and concepts of molecular modeling with an emphasis on molecular dynamics. We will introduce several MD software packages and how to use them on HPC systems and the Remote Visualisation Server of the LRZ. The workshop addresses people with a basic understanding of molecular simulations. (e.g. nano-scientists, biologists, physicists or researchers from life-science). The Schrödinger-experts will present the Schrödinger software suite, providing a diverse set of tools for modeling and computing the structure and properties of chemical systems, antibodies and proteins. It includes applications for e.g. quantum mechanics, homology modeling, and docking. The integrated high-performance graphical interface 'Maestro' is used for preparing, running, and analyzing the computational results of the various applications. For more details see: . Advanced visualization tools are also provided e.g: an overview of the virtual reality tools developed within NOMAD (, LRZ CAVE, HTC Vive and Google Cardboard.
