This is a 1 ECTS instructive course in protein structure and drug design given at Lund University. Participants will get the opportunity to gain deeper understanding and hands-on knowledge about protein-ligand interactions, compound docking and structure in drug design. Registration deadline – 1 December, 2015.
Overview of course content:
Lecture: Protein-ligand interactions and drug design. Structure-based drug design (SBDD): Hit identification, hit optimisation lead generation
Tutorial: In silico screening and compound docking
Lecture: Structural aspect of protein synthesis inhibition by antibiotics
Tutorial: Assessment and analysis of docking results
Maximum number of participants: 10
Requirements for participants:
Basic understanding of protein structure and knowledge of a graphics programmes such as SwissPDB viewer.
See for example www.proteinstructures.com for general information on protein structures.
Software for download of SwissPDB viewer and tutorial can be found at http://spdbv.vital-it.ch/.
