CHEM 644
Survey of computational methods for the molecular simulation of biopolymers.  Introduction to molecular dynamics and monte carlo simulations. Covers concepts such as energy landscapes, force fields,  electrostatic interactions, influence of solvents, assessing the  convergence of molecular simulations and analysis of simulation data.  Applications primarily to proteins, though nucleic acids, sugars and  lipids will also be mentioned. Calculations using the CHARMm and/or GROMACS simulation codes.
