NBCR Summer Training Program - "cellPACK Workshop"
NBCR is pleased to offer a Summer Training Program (STP) to introduce users to the cellPACK and cellVIEW tools for molecular packing on cellular data. In this course, instructors will introduce the broad principles of cellPACK and demonstrate steps to build a custom “recipe” by modeling cell compartments with triangular meshes and proteins or “ingredients” from their respective crystallographic structure. Participants will learn cellPACK, cellVIEW and cellPAINT tools to enhance their research on drug discovery, multi-scale modeling, and complex biology.
In this course, students will learn the principle of cellPACK and blender. Participants will also follow a step by step tutorial and get experience using cellPACK as a blender plug-in. An optional module introducing a new tool cellPAINT is also included in this course.
