The Computation Chemistry training was the first part of the series of HPC training sessions. The training was conducted by Dr. Gadzikano Munyuki a lecturer from the Chinhoyi University of Technology (CUT) and it was attended by 36 participants. The session focused on advanced life sciences computational software tools such as Gromacs, Xmgrace and Pymol in performing molecular dynamics simulations with an objective of analyzing biochemical molecules such as proteins, lipids and nucleic acids as well as research on non-biological systems such as polymers.
