Tutorial Details: Introduction to Cerius2 and Material Studio

Date: Friday, June 25, 2004, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 402 Walter
Instructor(s): Assistant Professor Yuk Y Sham PhD, Center for Drug Design

Molecular modeling is a general term that covers a wide range of molecular graphics and computational techniques that are used to build, display, manipulate, simulate, and calculate molecular properties. Cerius2 and MaterialStudio are two graphic user interfaces that act as a front end to many of these molecular modeling tools.

This tutorial covers the basic molecular crystals building and visualization features within these two interfaces, in addition to demonstrating some of their utility modules.

Prerequisites: Basic Knowledge of Chemistry
