Hands on Training & Workshop on

Computational Drug Discovery

Jointly organized by REVA University, Bengaluru and Scientific Bio-Minds

Department of Biotechnology, School of Applied Sciences, REVA University in association with Scientific Bio-Minds, is conducting hands on workshop on computational drug discovery and Development. The training program helps students and researchers who working in drug discovery need tools and techniques for handling chemical information. This workshop offers a unique opportunity to try out a range of software packages for themselves with expert tuition in different aspects of pre-clinical drug discovery. Attendees will be able to choose from sessions covering data processing and visualisation; ligand and structure-based design, or ADMET prediction run by the software providers. All software and training materials required for the workshop will be provided for attendees to install and run on their own laptops and use for a limited period afterwards.
