Course Spotlight: CHEM 5240 – Intro to Protein Modeling

Offered in Spring 2020.
MWF 1:50 – 2:45pm
Dr. Richard Spinney

Students will have an opportunity to explore the theories and methods of molecular modeling and computational chemistry in CHEM 5240: Introduction to Protein Modeling.

The course allows students to get hands-on experience with computational chemistry software, using molecular mechanics, and modeling dynamic systems (molecular dynamics) as applied to large biological molecules such as proteins. The course focuses on the application of modern modeling techniques, rather than the mathematical formulation, used to solve current problems in biochemistry and pharmacology. The course runs like a workshop with extensive computer time using modern protein modeling software.

Prerequisites: Successful completion of CHEM 2520 (Organic Chemistry II)
