About Workshop

Molecular modelling is a collection of (computer-based) techniques for deriving, representing and manipulating the structures and reactions of molecules, and those properties that are dependent on these three-dimensional structures. This workshop aims to introduce in a simple way the hierarchy of computational modelling methods used nowadays as a standard tools by chemist Bioinformaticians and Biotechnologists for rationalizing and predicting structure and reactivity of bio molecules. Hence, this training course for the workshop has been designed to provide the theoretical background as well as a hands-on approach to Molecular Docking and Virtual screening. The workshop will also cover the use of different software and will focus on Cheminformatics methods for lead identification and optimization.


RK University (RKU) is the first state private university in Saurashtra & Kutch region. It was established by the state of Gujarat, under the Private State University Act, 2009 by a gazette notification dated 12 October 2011 and recognized by University Grant commission (UGC) under section 22 of UGC Act,1956. University offers degrees in Science, Ayurveda, Engineering, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Management Studies. The University is equipped with State of Art Laboratories, Classrooms, Libraries, Seminar Halls, Sports Building and well-designed Botanical Garden. Highly qualified and well experienced faculties are associated with the University. RKU is the only state private university accredited by NAAC-UGC in western Gujarat region. RKU is ranked across the nation in Swatch campus ranking by MHRD, Govt. of India.


School of Science (SOS) was established in 2011 under the ages of RK University with the intent of providing holistic education to graduate & post graduate students, whose career objectives go beyond academics. The school offers B.Sc. in Microbiology, Chemistry, Physics & Mathematics and M.Sc. in Microbiology, Organic chemistry, Analytical chemistry and Physics. The school offers Ph.D. programs in various areas of Life science, Chemistry and Physics.
