Ab Initio Modelling in Applied Biosciences: Structure, Dynamics and Function
Uppsala University, December 11-12th, 2008
Quantum mechanical interactions at the atomic scale often dictate biological processes those are extremely complex in nature. This is particularly important for applied biosciences (bionanotechnology, pharmacology) where theoretical methods based on quantum mechanics are being used with increasing success.
The integration of different electronic-structure methods with various levels of approximations allows us to analyze experimental results and also to predict properties with reasonable accuracies. This workshop will bring in experts in the field of applied biological sciences to interact, exchange and compare the various methodologies and show the potentialities and the limitation of state-of-the art quantum-mechanics-based computational techniques.
Emphasis will be given on topics and approaches
for which direct contact with experiments can be made. Also, this
workshop will serve as an excellent platform for the training of
Ph.D. students, postdocs and early stage young researchers.
Bursaries are available for for PhD students within Europe.
