About the course

Computational chemistry is playing an increasingly pronounced role within the life sciences, both in its own right, but also as a complement to experiments. The course is provided by prominent computational chemists and biologists with considerable experience in the molecular simulation of macromolecular systems. In the course, you will learn how to apply basic simulation methods to biological macromolecules, both through lectures and through practical exercises. The course also covers advanced methods for, e.g., enhanced sampling and reactivity calculations.
