BCC2020 is online, global, and affordable. The meeting and training are now done, and the CoFest is under way.

The 2020 Bioinformatics Community Conference brings together the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) and the Galaxy Community Conference into a single event featuring training, a meeting, and a CollaborationFest. Events run from July 17 through July 25, and is held in both the eastern and western hemispheres.

Molecular dynamics (MD) is one of the most commonly used techniques in computational chemistry and biophysics for biomolecular modeling. However, MD has a steep learning curve, regarding both the underlying theory and the software. During this session, you will learn some of the main principles behind MD simulation and analysis of protein-ligand systems, using the Galaxy platform to provide an intuitive, graphical interface to the MD engine and analysis software. We will then show you how to scale-up to high-throughput MD using Galaxy collections.
