It's that time of year again, when we advertise our fun and engaging course on computational drug discovery. This year it is held on the 17th to 21st November 2014, at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambs UK.
This workshop provides participants with the underlying principles of computational chemical biology and addresses how these methods are applied in the field of drug discovery. It will explore approaches to accessing data, combining different data types and introduce the tools available to assist analysis work. Practical sessions will guide participants in retrieving and analysing chemogenomic, proteomic and metabolomic data for target analysis.
This workshop is suitable for both academic and industrial researchers interested in drug discovery from a range of biological disciplines. An undergraduate level of biology is essential and participants should have a basic understanding of UNIX, programming and running simple scripts (such as python).
