BioExcel Webinars

PDC hosts the popular BioExcel webinar series together with the University of Edinburgh. The webinar series ( ) features notable developments in the field of computational biomolecular research: success stories, new software releases, novel methods, new databases, and anything else that will be of interest and use to the research community. The webinars are held with a live audience so people can ask questions at the end of the presentations. The recordings of the webinars are then posted on the BioExcel YouTube channel ( ) where the series has proven to be popular.

Last spring several of the webinars were by KTH researchers: Paul Bauer and Berk Hess gave a webinar on the new GROMACS release ( ), Berk Hess and Magnus Lundborg spoke about applying the AWH method to alchemical transformations ( ) and Joe Jordan reported on the portable NonBonded-LIBrary NB-LIB ( ).
