Online Workshop: Introduction to MDAnalysis and Molecular Nodes

MDAnalysis, in collaboration with Molecular Nodes, has scheduled its next free online training workshop on February 28, 2024 from 03:00-07:00 UTC.

This remote workshop will consist of an introduction to the MDAnalysis Python library and hands-on basic MDAnalysis tutorials, followed by an introduction to Molecular Nodes and an interactive tutorial for visualizing imported MDAnalysis data. The workshop will be delivered to a small group to allow interactive discussions, questions, and participant engagement. It is designed for those who are beginners to MDAnalysis and Molecular Nodes, but already have previous knowledge of Python and working with shell and notebook environments.

MDAnalysis is an open source Python library for manipulating and analyzing data from molecular simulations, with a focus on molecular dynamics. It supports file formats from most programs (GROMACS, Amber, LAMMPS, etc.), allowing you to write powerful and transferable analysis scripts. Molecular Nodes is an add-on for the 3D modeling and animation program, Blender. Molecular Nodes enables easy import of molecular dynamics trajectories and topologies from a variety of simulation sources, while Blender provides the industry-leading animation and rendering tools to create visually stunning molecular graphics with ease.

If you are interested in participating in this workshop, fill out this short application form. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and selected participants will be notified by Feb 19, 2024. We have a small number of bursaries to enable participation for researchers from underrepresented groups who are facing financial barriers; these can be applied for when completing the application form.

Please contact with any questions.
