NCC and CoE Collaboration: BioExcel Workshop on GROMACS and HADDOCK

On October 18 and 19, 2023, a workshop focused on working with GROMACS and HADDOCK software tools was held in Bratislava. The workshop was the result of cooperation between competence centers in Slovakia, Austria, the Czech Republic and Hungary with the BioExcel center of excellence. The BioExcel CoE team develops both applications, so experienced lecturers could not only show common simulations and modeling, but also answer specific questions from participants.

NCC and CoE Collaboration: BioExcel Workshop on GROMACS and HADDOCK

On October 18 and 19, 2023, a workshop focused on working with GROMACS and HADDOCK software tools was held in Bratislava. The workshop was the result of cooperation between competence centers in Slovakia, v Austria, Czech Republic and Hungary with BioExcel center of excellence.  The BioExcel CoE team develops both applications, so experienced lecturers could not only show common simulations and modeling, but also answer specific questions from participants.

The workshop was held in a hybrid format. As the host organization was NCC Slovakia (with the support of the Austrian NCC), the new Slovak supercomputer Devana was used for hands-on exercises. In addition to the theoretical lecture, during the first day, the participants tried molecular dynamics simulation for a simple membrane protein using GROMACS, including setting up the input files, as well as the simulation itself for energy minimization and data production. The exercise was carried out using an interactive Jupyter notebook. An interesting part was the calculations with the use and comparison of the performance of the application on CPU and GPU computing servers.

The second day of the workshop was devoted to the HADDOCK tool, which is used for integrative modeling of various types of biomolecular systems and their interactions. The HADDOCK3 version is currently available, which offers a modular workflow setup in addition to data-driven docking. The user can choose his own combination of independent modules for his specific case.

We also believe that we will be able to offer similar events in the future thanks to our cooperation with the EuroCC community and centers of excellence.

EuroHPC JU Call for Proposals for Benchmark Access 2024 14 Feb - The purpose of theEuroHPC JU Benchmark Access calls is to support researchers and HPC application developers by giving them the opportunity to test or benchmark their applications on the upcoming/available EuroHPC Pre-exascale and/or Petascale system prior to applying for an Extreme Scale and/or Regular Access.
EuroHPC JU Call for Proposals for Development Access 2024 14 Feb - The purpose of the EuroHPC JU Development Access calls is to support researchers and HPC application developers by giving them the opportunity to develop, test and optimise their applications on the upcoming/available EuroHPC Pre-exascale and/or Petascale system prior to applying for an Extreme Scale and/or Regular Access. The EuroHPC Development call is designed for projects focusing on code and algorithm development and optimisation. As well as development of AI application methods.
International Day of Women and Girls in Science 11 Feb - The International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated annually on February 11th, was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015. This day reminds us that women and girls play a crucial role in science and technology and that their support in this area needs to be further enhanced. The contribution of women in science is invaluable, from basic research to the development of technologies. Women, such as Marie Curie, Rosalind Franklin, and many others, have had a fundamental impact on our understanding of the world.
