Our researcher José Carbonell from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) will present a PerMedCoE poster at the EMBO Workshop titled “Advances and Challenges in Biomolecular Simulations” on Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 October 2021 in the afternoon. This opportunity will provide the EMBO community to get a bit more familiar with the latest results of the projects.

About the Workshop
Computational techniques are an integral core of biomolecular research. Software applications provide fundamental support to experimental studies in biochemistry, biotechnology and bioinformatics. Pharmaceutical companies and the agricultural sector rely on designing molecules through high-throughput screening, docking and molecular dynamics simulations, and to this end are also applying free energy calculations on a large scale. Both X-ray crystallography and NMR increasingly apply automated pipelines for structure determination, and single-particle cryo-EM relies on capturing >100,000 images to computationally fit structures from the computed electron density.
