About Workshops

On registration you must select the workshop you want to attend. After registration deadline, we will finalize the results and make an announcement in the telegram channel. If the number of participants for a master class will be greater than possible (see requirements of the master classes below), then the first registrants from the list will be invited. They will need to confirm their participation. If they do not do this within the allotted time, the invitation will be sent to the next person on the list. Don't miss our news!

Please note on registration that each workshop contains requirements, for example, the participant must have a laptop.

Drug design

Philipp Orekhov, Marine Bozdaganyan

Participants: 20 people

Requirements: A modern Laptop (recommended no earlier than 2017) is required.

In this hands-on session, students will delve into the fascinating world of drug discovery. Through interactive guided exercises, all participants will learn how to utilize cutting-edge techniques such as similarity search, pharmacophore search, and molecular docking to identify potential drug candidates. Additionally, they will gain insights into patent search strategies and the process of ordering compounds for experimental assays. Whether you're a novice or an experienced researcher, this workshop offers valuable skills and knowledge essential for advancing in the field of computational drug design.


Milita Kocharovskaya

Participants: 20 people

Requirements: A modern Laptop (recommended no earlier than 2017) with an x86-64 CPU architecture (64-bit Intel or AMD processors), a 64-bit operating system (Windows 10 or higher; mac OS 11 or higher; Linux Ubuntu 20.04 or higher, Fedora 36 or higher, CentOS/RHEL 8 or higher), at least 8 GB RAM, and charger for laptop. The list of required software will be announced later.

Presently, cryo-electron microscopy is becoming more and more popular technique in Structural Biology. In our workshop, we will show the processing of images obtained using an electron microscope in cryoSPARC. Participants will be able to pass the way from raw data to interpretation and analysis of a spatial structure. The workshop includes picking and collecting particles from images, their 2D classification and 3D structure reconstruction.

NMR spectroscopy

Maxim Dubinnyi, Erik Kot, Vladislav Lushpa

Participants: 30 people

Requirements: A pen is required.

Puzzle out the NMR quest!
1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy is the worldwide standard to characterize novel substances or puzzle out unknowns in chemistry. The path from the raw NMR data to verified chemical structure goes through a list of well-known rules. If you've never analyzed 2D NMR but love puzzle solving then you will be happy to uncover several simple chemicals following concise guidelines. All you need is brain, pen and imagination to guess the molecules hidden.
