An Introductory Workshop to the Rosetta Protein Modeling Suite
March 11-12, 2011
(Friday afternoon to Saturday afternoon)
Online registration deadline
Hotel booking deadline
The goal of the workshop is to educate and train academic users on the Rosetta Software suite which is freely distributed to the academic community by RosettaCommons. The workshop will be catered towards attendees' needs. Time is allocated to address research questions presented by attendees. A set of data analysis scripts/tools will be provided along with the Rosetta Software suite on a USB drive. Meals and USB drives are covered by the registration fee ($100); transportation and hotel reservation is not covered. Join the Meiler Lab for our first annual Rosetta Workshop!
ROSETTA is a unified software package for protein structure prediction and functional design. It has been used to predict protein structures with and without the aid of sparse experimental data, perform protein-protein and protein-small molecule docking, design novel proteins and redesign existing proteins for altered function. ROSETTA allows for rapid tests of hypotheses in biomedical research which would be impossible or exorbitantly expensive to perform via traditional experimental methods. Thereby, ROSETTA methods are becoming increasingly important in the interpretation of biological findings, e.g., from genome projects and in the engineering of therapeutics, probe molecules and model systems in biomedical research (Kaufmann, K. W.; Lemmon, G. H.; Deluca, S. L.; Sheehan, J. H.; Meiler, J. "Practically Useful: What the Rosetta Protein Modeling Suite Can Do for You" Biochemistry 2010.)
