 Structure-Based Drug Design and Ligand Modification
The course covers MOE applications for interactive structure based design. Examples include active site visualization, protein-ligand contact analysis and ligand modification/optimization in the receptor pocket. Conformational searching and analysis of the ligand to assess ligand flexibility will be discussed. A protocol for aligning and superposing protein complexes in the context of protein selectivity will be studied.

 Antibody Modeling and Protein Engineering in MOE
The course covers approaches for structure-based biologics design and includes protein-protein interactions analysis, in silico protein engineering, affinity modeling and antibody homology modeling. The interaction of a co-crystallized antibody-antigen complex will be evaluated by generating and examining the molecular surface topology and visualizing protein-protein interactions in 3D and 2D. The application of protein engineering tools for homology modeling and conducting property optimization of an antibody-antigen complex in the context developability will be studied.All the steps necessary for producing and assessing antibody homology models will be described. Methods for evaluating the structure of protein and antibody models will be discussed.
