Software Tools for Computational Science

Description

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Knowledge of compilation of molecular simulation codes
  • Preparation of inputs for molecular simulations
  • Running of molecular simulations on standard workstations and supercomputers
  • Analysis of the data obtained from a molecular simulation
  • Presentation of the results for an oral communication

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This is an "hands-on" course in which we study software programs used to run and analyse computer simulations in chemistry and biology. In particular, we focus on visualisation of molecules, tools to set up and analyse atomistic and coarse grained simulations. Lectures are alternated with practical sessions to familiarise with the software programs.

 

LEARNING METHODS

Problem-based learning and team-based learning through group discussions Teaching method: Tutorial sessions + hands-on sessions on the codes

 

EXAMINATION INFORMATION
The course will be evaluated through assignments and a final project presentation with the support of slides prepared by the student
