CMB 452 - Computer Modeling of Biomolecules
Computational methods have expanded in scope and play a crucial role in developing quantitative models of biological systems at all levels of complexity. This course covers three groups of topics in computational structural biology: protein structure prediction, molecular simulations and structure-based drug design, focusing on sequence-structure-function relationships in biomolecules. Cross-listed with CMB 552. Offered winter semester. Prerequisites: BIO 120 (or CMB 155 and CMB 156); CHM 115; CHM 116; (CMB 250 or CHM 461); (MTH 122, MTH 123, and MTH 125) or (MTH 201 and MTH 202); (PHY 220 and PHY 221) or (PHY 230 and PHY 231); or permission of the instructor.
