<I>Register now for the July 18 Virtual Crash Course: Python Scripting for Molecular Docking</I>Register now for the July 18 Virtual Crash Course: Python Scripting for Molecular Docking

In this workshop, we will use Python scripting to explore ligand binding to enzymes. In the process, we will use a number of python libraries and these notebooks will be customizable for individual research and teaching purposes.

At the completion of this workshop, users will be able to:

  • Perform advanced searches of the RCSB Protein Data Bank with the rcsbsearchapi package
  • Modify chemical structures with the rdkit library
  • Dock ligands with enzymes, yielding visual and quantitative energy results

This virtual event will take place Thursday, July 18, 2024 from 1-5pm Eastern, 10am-2pm Pacific.

Participation is free, but registration is required to receive the Zoom meeting information by email.

The workshop is intended for:

  • Undergraduate students in any STEM discipline
  • Graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in life sciences and data collection
  • Faculty members who want to incorporate Python scripting into their teaching or research
  • Professionals involved in collecting and analyzing data, particularly big data

A virtual office hour may be held on Monday July 15 (3pm-5pm Eastern) to help users with Python/Jupyter notebooks before the Crash Course. Please indicate on the registration form if interested.

Questions? Please contact info@rcsb.org.

Participants may also be interested in recordings of past training events, including Python Scripting for Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Part 1 and Part 2.
