Bioinformatics workshop offered April 3

Submitted by Raman Chandrasekar

The Kansas State University Postdoctoral Association has organized a one-day workshop on bioinformatics from 2:30-5 p.m. April 3 at the College of Engineering's Fiedler Auditorium, Room 1107.

The bioinformatics workshop is designed to teach a user the machine learning, or ML, approaches of protein structure and concepts of 3-D protein design/modeling and visualization of 3-D structures with an emphasis on machine learning application for bioinformatics.

This workshop includes a lecture on "Introduction to Protein Structure" by Philip Klebba, professor and head of the biochemistry and molecular biophysics department, and followed by hands-on exercise by Raman Chandrasekar, research associate in biochemistry and molecular biophysics.

The workshop will cover PyMOL, an open-source molecular-graphics system for real-time visualization, 3-D model and rapid generation of high-quality molecular graphics image and animations. The workshop is supported by the MOSE Center for BioMolecular Modeling. We invite everyone interested in learning 3-D modeling of protein structures.

For more information please contact Chandrasekar, the workshop organizer, at kpaworkshop@gmail.com or  chandbr@k-state.edu. In preparation of the workshop, some housekeeping information — workshop materials, software details — will be emailed directly to the registered participants.
