Physics-School on “Molecular Dynamics Simulations in Biophysics”, 26 Apr – 1 May 2020

We like to bring to your attention a Physics-School on “Molecular Dynamics Simulations in Biophysics” at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef/Bonn, Germany, 26 April – 1 May, 2020.

Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations have become a powerful tool in modern biomolecular science and allow one to follow the motion of molecules at high spatial and time resolution. The full potential of MD lies in the link between this
information and experimental properties: with the help of statistical mechanics it is possible to extract a variety of thermodynamic and kinetic properties of a molecular system. A major focus will be on effi cient methods to extract thermodynamic quantities such as solvation properties and free energies from simulations. Advanced techniques such as multiscale methods and combinations of classical molecular mechanics combined with quantum mechanical approaches will also be covered. The methods will be illustrated on several examples and further evaluated in Discussion sessions.
Participants are invited to present posters or to give short talks in extra sessions.
