Schrodinger Workshop: Structure-Based Virtual Screening with Glide


Date and Time 
November 20, 2019
10:00am to 3:00pm
Robin Li & Melissa Ma Science Library, Room 402, Sapp Center for Teaching and Learning
Event Sponsor 
Stanford University Libraries and Schrodinger

In this half-day workshop, you will learn hands-on how to perform a virtual screen for potential inhibitors using the ligand docking application, Glide ( Registration required.  This free workshop is limited to current students, faculty, and staff at Stanford.   Please use your Stanford email address when registering.
The workshop will cover the workflow for virtual screening, from initial steps to analysis of results. You will learn how to prepare proteins and ligands, generate a protein receptor grid, dock a set of ligands into the receptor grid, and analyze the docking results using the Maestro interface. The workshop will also cover the theory underpinning docking, preforming virtual screenings of large compound databases, and considerations for applied virtual screening your targets of interest. A short introduction to Maestro will precede the workshop.
Topics covered:

  • Protein Prep
  • Ligand Database Preparation
  • Docking with Glide
  • Running Virtual Screens
