RBIF 101

Structural Bioinformatics

In this intensive course students will investigate the interrelationships existing amongst protein sequence, structure, and function through the lens of a structural bioinformaticist. Topics covered range from analysis of protein structure to domain classification, phylogeny, structural modeling, interaction site prediction, kinetics and thermodynamics of biomolecular interactions, and structure-based drug design. Throughout the course students will be exposed to software tools utilized by structural bioinformaticists in their daily work.
