A worldwide e-Infrastructure for NMR and structural biology

WeNMR Workshop - NMR applications on the Grid


The workshop „NMR applications on the Grid“ is a 2-days workshop connected to the EUROMAR conference in Frankfurt and is organised by the WeNMR consortium. The workshop gives an introduction, overview and practical training on how to use some of the widely used and state of the art biomolecular NMR applications (ranging from data processing and analysis to structure determination) that are available on the Grid. The covered software packages are integrated in WeNMR webportals. The program covers:

  • Introduction to the Grid
  • Introduction to NMR structure determination
  • Hyper dimensional processing: MDD-NMR
  • Protein backbone resonance assignment: MARS
  • NMR structure calculation: CYANA, TALOS+
  • Macromolecular docking: HADDOCK
  • Structure modelling of DNA: 3D-DART

The workshop will have a practical and comprehensive hands-on approach to introduce and train the participants in the various topics. Each of the topics is presented by lecturers and tutors that are either authors of the softwares, highly skilled experienced users and/or directly connected to the development or porting of the software on the Grid.


Trainers and lecturers:

  • Chris Spronk
  • Henry Jonker
  • Marc van Dijk
  • Anurag Bagaria
  • Victor Zharavin
  • Suhas Tikole
