Workshop Details
Coarse-Grained Modeling of Structure and Dynamics of Biomacromolecules (In-Person Participation))
07/25/2022 - 07/29/2022
Meeting Description:

Purpose of the workshop:

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together eminent scholars with expertise in coarse-grained modeling to study the structure and dynamics of proteins, nucleic acids and other biological macromolecules. Several different aspects of coarse-grained modeling will be discussed, such as:

i) development of statistical coarse-grained potentials
ii) structure prediction based on coarse-grained modeling
iii) prediction of structural flexibility and low-frequency domain motions using normal mode analysis, elastic network models and computer simulations, and their importance for biological functions of macromolecules.

A special focus will be given to the analysis of conformational changes in biological systems using coarse-grained models and their applications to biomolecular machines. A significant emphasis will be given to the diversity at our workshop by having a good balance of gender, ethnic origin and U.S./Non-U.S. citizens among the invited speakers.


The registration fee includes five breakfasts, a Wednesday-night BBQ picnic, and all the coffee and snacks you can eat.

If you are interested in attending a meeting, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer about availability before registering. Most TSRC meetings are very small, typically only about 25 people.

Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family and/or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Ah Haa School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website at Please contact Cindy Fusting at for more information.
