Programme features

This 4-day course will bring together computational and experimental (bio)chemistry experts who will give comprehensive lectures on understanding and engineering enzyme catalysis. Hands-on practical sessions will be focused on how to use state-of-the-art software and webservers – including PROSS, FuncLib, EBI enzyme portal, qFIT and qFIT-ligand, CAVER and DynaComm – complemented by lectures on the EVB and QM/MM methods. In addition, experimental researchers will give lectures on how these in silico approaches complement their research on enzyme catalysis. Students will be encouraged to work on their own research problems using their own laptops for working with the web-tools that will be covered in the tutorials. Students will present and discuss their own research results during the poster sessions and short oral presentations. The programme will encourage interactions between students and lecturers and will provide opportunities to establish new professional relationships.

Registration – Tuesday, October 19, 2021

Registration will take place between 9:00-9:30 at the Faculty of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine (FBMM) of the University of Oulu.
