Three-days workshop on HADDOCK

Istanbul, Boğaziçi University, 20-22 June 2011


You are invited to a three-days HADDOCK workshop, to be held on 20-22 June 2011.

HADDOCK is an information-driven docking program developed at Utrecht University, which is widely used in the structural biology community and has demonstrated a strong performance in the blind docking competition CAPRI.

The workshop will be given by Prof. Alexandre Bonvin with a number of his group members. It will consist of lectures in the morning and hands-on sessions on computers in the afternoon. There is no quota for the lectures but the hands-on training sessions are limited to 30 people. For these, experience with Linux is a requisite. The workshop will cover various aspects of the modelling of biomolecular complexes including:

  • Protein-Protein Docking
  • Multi-body Docking
  • Protein-DNA Docking
  • Protein-Ligand Docking

Registration for attending the practical hands-on sessions is required with June 6th as deadline. Registration if free of charge! To register, please send e-mail to Ezgi Karaca (e.karaca@uu.nl), indicating your department and institution. Further details on the program will be sent to the participants via e-mail.
