Welcome! This course is focused on learning theoretical and computational techniques to predict, model, and simulate structure of biological macromolecules. More information will be added here before the course; the first lecture will be abbreviated and given back-to-back with the first lecture of the structural biochemistry course to facilitate synchronization for students who would like to take both courses.
The book used in this course is:
Molecular Modelling, Principles and Applications
Andrew R. Leach
Pearson Eduction, ISBN: 978-0-582-38210-7
Questions? You can reach Berk Hess directly at hess[at]cbr.su.se

(i) Log out: When you are leaving the computer lab for the day, please log out from your computer! This means that the screen will not be locked when someone else comes along and wants to use the machine.
(ii) Size of report: Although high-resolution pictures are nice, please convert them so that the size of the report is < 5 MB. Also, we love pdf:s...
(iii) Deadline for lab reports: All lab reports should be sent by e-mail (to Christine Sophie Schwaiger - email@example.com) before the next lab. The last lab report is due on Dec 18.
(iv) Status of lab reports: The status of the lab reports can be found here.
(v) Passing the lab course: All lab reports that is not labelled as PASSED before January 15 will need to be done again the next time the course is given.
Comments for the labs:
Lab 1: ftp://ftp.wwpdb.org/pub/pdb/doc/format_descriptions/Format_v32_A4.pdf - a description about the pdf file format. Could be helpful for Lab 1 Q1 ;)
