West coast Molecular Discovery Training

Location: Foster City Crowne Plaza (San Francisco Bay)

Start date: Feb. 20, 2018

End date: Feb. 21, 2018

Molecular Discovery are organizing a Training at the Foster City Crowne Plaza on the 20th and 21st of February 2018. The aim of the training will be the “Use of Webmetabase in Drug Discovery for both Met ID specialist and chemists”. The Training will be divided in two parts depending on the interest: The first part will be focused on the processing of the metabolism data for small molecules and peptides and will be done on the 20th of February 2018 from 8:00 to 17:00. While the second part will be dedicated to the use of the data in drug discovery, how to design compounds, computational tools to mine of the information. This second part will be done on the 21st of February 2018 from 8:00 to 17:00.
