Organized by:

Laboratory of Radiation Biology of Joint Institute for Nuclear Research

Topics covered:

  • Molecular dynamics simulations of proteins
  • Protein-folding research by generalized-ensemble techniques
  • Mutation transition effects in protein structures
  • Molecular dynamics (MD) and Monte-Carlo (MC) simulations of radiation-induced mutations
  • Modeling genetic regulatory networks in bacterial and mammalian cells
  • Simulation of DNA damage induction under ionizing radiations
  • Chemical and nanostructure design (crystal, liquid and polymer systems)
  • Drug design (docking of one molecule to another, enzymes, inhibitory activities)
  • Novel MD computing methods (DFT, QM/MM, MD, MD/CFD, hybrid approaches)
  • General- & special-purpose MD machines and modern communication architectures

The principal aims:

We will provide a platform for computer molecular simulation communities and scientists working in the material and biological areas to meet and share thoughts on latest trends.The main objective is to focus on the molecular dynamics simulations of chemical physics and biophysical systems.
