This workshop is designed to enable users to run protein molecular dynamics simulations effectively using best practices. We cover basic workflows which include how to build systems appropriate for MD, running MD, basic and advanced trajectory analysis tools, and the architecture and configuration of Desmond input and output files. Finally, we will consider the use of binding-pose metadynamics as an approach for improved pose prediction within the context of a protein:ligand complex. Familiarity with Maestro is recommended.

Topics to be covered:1. Why use molecular dynamics? 2. Setting up MD simulations and best practices3. Analyzing molecular dynamics trajectories4. Binding-pose metadynamics
