ONLINE WORKSHOP IN PROTEIN SIMULATION AND GENE MUTATION USING PYMOL SOFTWARE
AIREC Online Workshop in Protein Simulation and Gene Mutation Using PyMOL Software provides researchers with comprehensive training on utilizing the PyMOL software for protein simulation and analyzing gene mutations. This workshop equips participants with the necessary knowledge and practical skills to effectively study protein structures, perform molecular simulations, and analyze the impact of gene mutations on protein function.
- Introduction to PyMOL:
Participants will receive an overview of PyMOL, a powerful molecular visualization and analysis software widely used in structural biology. They will learn how to navigate the software interface, load protein structures, and manipulate molecular representations.
- Protein visualization and analysis:
Researchers will explore various techniques in PyMOL to visualize and analyze protein structures. This includes highlighting specific residues, visualizing secondary structures, analyzing hydrogen bonding patterns, and examining protein-ligand interactions.
- Protein simulation and dynamics:
The workshop will cover the fundamentals of molecular dynamics simulations using PyMOL. Participants will learn how to set up and run simulations to study protein motions, conformational changes, and explore ligand binding events.
- Introduction to gene mutation analysis:
Participants will delve into the field of gene mutation analysis, understanding the different types of mutations and their impact on protein structure and function. They will explore databases and tools to retrieve mutation data and learn how to incorporate this information into their protein simulations.
- Analyzing gene mutations using PyMOL:
Researchers will learn how to incorporate gene mutation data into PyMOL and visualize the effects of mutations on protein structure. They will analyze changes in key structural features, such as active sites, binding pockets, and protein-protein interaction interfaces.
- Protein engineering and rational drug design:
The workshop will explore how protein simulation and gene mutation analysis can be utilized in protein engineering and rational drug design. Participants will learn how to design mutations to improve protein stability, alter binding affinities, or optimize enzymatic activities.
