MD Training

Molecular Dynamics Training

University of Strathclyde

This five day course ran remotelly using zoom will cover the basic knowledge and skills required to run molecular dynamics (MD) simulations using the NAMD package. Two hands-on session will help the participants to run their own simulations. If you wish to attend but you have other commitments we can discuss the dates of next Sessions at first Session. The schedule of hands-on sessions will depend on number of attendees.

The training will cover:

Basic Principles in MD theory                                                  Hands-on session 1

Wednesday, 10th of February, 1pm – 4pm.                                                                                      Wednesday, 17th of February, 1pm – 4pm.

The training delivered by Dr Karina Kubiak – Ossowska from ARCHIE-WeSt supporting team is available to staff and postgraduate students from ARCHIE-WeSt partner institutions. The number of attendees is limited, and the priority will be given to users of ARCHIE-WeSt. Places for users of other facilities will be subject to availability. The students who will complete the training (attendance on all 5 sessions and the report describing their own simulations) will get the certificate of the attendance worth 5 credits.
