Course Detail

BS3008 Computational Biology and Modeling
This course aims to equip you with both the physical foundations of biomolecular dynamics simulation methods and practical training in use of these methods. It helps you to understand the structure of biomolecules and more importantly link the structure and dynamics together. In the course you will develop skills in describing structure and dynamics in a quantitative way which enables rational drug discovery in later courses.
a) Introduction to molecular modelling
b) Molecular force fields
c) Application of molecular force fields in research
d) Methods of energy minimization
e) Methods of molecular dynamics simulation
f) Methods of Monte Carlo Simulations
g) Basic Statistical Mechanics
h) Data analysis
i) Methods of molecular docking
j) Electrostatics and Dielectric continuum models
k) Poisson-Boltzmann (PB) model,
