Schrödinger Workshop: Structure-Based Virtual Screening with Glide


Date and Time 
February 28, 2018
9:00am to 1:00pm
Robin Li and Melissa Ma Science Library Training Room, Room 402 Sapp Center for Teaching and Learning, 376 Lomita Drive
Event Sponsor 
Stanford Libraries and Schrödinger.

In this half-day workshop, you will learn hands-on how to perform a virtual screen for potential inhibitors using the ligand docking application, Glide ( The workshop will cover the workflow for virtual screening, from initial steps to analysis of results. You will learn how to prepare proteins and ligands, generate a protein receptor grid, dock a set of ligands into the receptor grid, and analyze the docking results using the Maestro interface. The workshop will also cover the theory underpinning docking, preforming virtual screenings of large compound databases, and considerations for applied virtual screening your targets of interest. A short introduction to Maestro will precede the workshop.
Attending the Workshop: You can attend the half-day workshop in-person or remotely via Zoom web conferencing software.   The session will be live-streamed but not recorded.   Room capacity to attend the training in-person is 24 people.    
Participating in a breakout session: In an earlier training session, users suggested adding a breakout session to apply what they just learned in the workshop so we added three breakout sessions after the workshop.  Attending a breakout session is optional.   Please sign up for one breakout session if you want help using the software for your research project.   It is possible to attend only a breakout session if you are already comfortable using Schrödinger software but want more tips and guidance applying it to your research needs.  Three breakout sessions will be held: 2:00-3:00pm, 3:15-4:15pm, and 4:30-5:30pm.
