TUESDAY AFTERNOON

 

DockoMatic: Docking Calculations and Homology Modeling

Tuesday afternoon, 18 June

Session length: half-day

Organizers: C. Mark Maupin (Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Colorado School of Mines, Golden, CO; cmmaupin@mines.edu) and Owen McDougal (Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Boise State University, Boise, ID; owenmcdougal@boisestate.edu).

Description: This workshop will focus on the use of the program DockoMatic. This program, created at Boise State University, is a wrapper that links several different codes, including Autodock4 and Modeller, into a single user friendly graphical interface (GUI). During this workshop the particants will be guided through the use of DockoMatic to create a homology model of a macromolecule. After the successful creation of the 3D structure for the macromolecule, DockoMatic will then be used to automate docking calculations between the macromolecule and a ligand. The workshop will finish up with an analysis of the calculations and a question answer phase to help participants formulate ways in which to use DockoMatic.

Cost: No fee for meeting registrants; one-day registration fee for non-registrants.
