• Must be able to apply principals of Molecular dynamics
simulations to real problems.
• Must be able to evaluate modeled protein structures and function.
• Must be able to apply the properties and chemistry of the aminoacids to real world problems.
• Must be able to evaluate results from molecular dynamics simulations.
• Must have a basic understanding of molecular modelling.
• Must have a general understanding of the physics of protein dynamics and force field based modeling strategies.
• Must have a general knowledge molecular simulations.
