Molecular dynamic (MD) simulations of lipid bilayers are nowadays used almost routinely to study various cell-membrane-related phenomena, such as drug–membrane interactions and lipid-mediated signaling. The aim of the NMRlipids winterschool is to give an introduction to MD simulations of lipid bilayers, and their quality evaluation against NMR spectroscopy and X-ray scattering data, as well as, to the NMRlipids open collaboration project and the NMRlipids Databank. The course hands-on exercises demonstrate how lipid bilayer properties can be analysed over hundreds of trajectories in the NMRlipids databank in automatic and flexible manner.
Target group: Students and researchers who are already using or are potentially interested in using MD simulations of lipid bilayers, open collaboration methods, or analysis of large publicly available datasets in their research. Particular focus of the winterschool is on the recently developed NMRlipids Databank, which enables novel analyses of publicly available MD simulation data also for researchers lacking special expertise in MD simulations. The winterschool will be followed by a meeting for people interested in the NMRlipids Databank development.
Registration: Number of onsite attendees is limited.
