Dresden: courses on general polymer theory and simulation

Snow in Dresden

13 April 2016. Core training courses will cover such topics as methodology, models, and statistical estimation and hypothesis tests. Essential background and computational models for modelling lipid bilayers and their interactions with nano-objects will also be provided.

Given the large differences in background between experimental and theoretical/computational ESRs, training courses will aim to highlight these two areas at different levels.

Compact courses on general polymer theory and simulation

  • Open for all ESRs and ERs. ERs are included in tutorials and course preparation activities. ESRs can be involved into existing programs such as the Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering DIGS-BB. The courses will involve lectures introducing concepts of polymer theory and simulation and practical training in programming using programming interfaces created in Dresden such as JBFM.
