8th Workshop on Bioinformatics and Molecular Modeling in Drug Design
March 15-17, 2018
Venue: Seminar Hall, ACBR, University of Delhi, Delhi
About the workshop
- Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Center for Biomedical Research (ACBR), University of Delhi, India is organizing its 8th workshop on Bioinformatics and Molecular Modeling in Drug Design (BIF-MMDD) at Seminar Hall, ACBR, University of Delhi during March 15–17, 2018.
- The meeting focuses on the advancement and exploration of the knowledge about modern trends in Bioinformatics viz. Computational Strategies, use of computers and informatics in understanding gene annotations, bio-molecular interactions, and Rational Drug Design. Various molecular modeling methods such as basics of bioinformatics tools, gene annotations, protein modeling, energy minimizations, molecular dynamics, docking methods and structure-based approaches will be discussed in detail. Along with this, an overview of Big data, protein-protein interaction networks, and pathway analysis will be covered with hands-on training sessions.
- The workshop would provide a great opportunity to budding scientists to share the knowledge and plan future strategies for modern drug research by intellectual interaction with the elite scientists of the country. It is anticipated that the workshop would unwrap new prospective for research in computer-aided drug design and bioinformatics.
About the Center
- Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Center for Biomedical Research (ACBR) is dedicated to research and postgraduate education in Biomedical Sciences. The institute serves as a prototype of doctoral training where young scientists at the start of their research career can gain the skills and insights required in their chosen fields.
- The Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility (BIF) Centre at ACBR under the Biotechnology Information System Network (BTISNet) programme of DBT started in 2006 to focus on Bioinformatics and drug design. The Facility is known for its research, sound training programmes and the pioneering initiatives in the field.
The topics would include:
- Bioinformatics and its application in understanding gene/protein function.
- Protein Structure Prediction
- Energy Minimization & Molecular Mechanics
- Understanding Biomolecular Interactions
- Structure and Ligand-Based Drug Design
- Protein-Protein Interaction Network and Big Data Analysis
