GENERAL INFORMATION: AMS-536 is designed for students who wish to gain hands-on experience modeling biological molecules at the atomic level. In conjunction with the participants' interest, Molecular Mechanics, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, Docking (virtual screening), or Quantum Mechanics software packages will be used. Projects will include setup, execution, and analysis. Students will work on individual projects outside of class. Course participants will give presentations relevant to the simulations being performed and a final project report will be required. Grades will be based on the quality of the talks, participation in class discussion, attendance, and the final written report. Familiarity with working in a Unix (Linux) environment is desirable.
- (1) Gain hands-on experience modeling biological molecules at the atomic level.
- (2) Learn to navigate linx/unix operating system
- (3) Learn shell scripting and text-based editing (vim program)
- (4) Learn to use a linux-based computing cluster that has a queuing system
- (5) Learn to use visualization software (Chimera, MOE, and VMD programs)
- (6) Setup, execute, and analyze docking (DOCK) and molecular dynamics (AMBER) tutorials.
- (7) Give oral presentations on individual research projects which includes:
- (i) Introduction/Background (include biological relevance)
- (ii) Specifics of Your System
- (iii) Computational Details (theory)
- (iv) Computational Details (system setup)
- (v) Results and Discussion (include a critical interpretation of your results)
- (vi) Conclusions
- (vii) Future
- (viii) Acknowledgments
- (8) Write a polished well-referenced manuscript in the format of a peer-reviewed Journal Article.

Faculty Technical Support Statement:
- Faculty needing to access information on using instructional technology for remote teaching should visit https://it.stonybrook.edu/keep-teaching
- If you experience problems using technology, please submit a service ticket at: https://it.stonybrook.edu/services/itsm
- CELT will provide remote support by Zoom at: https://stonybrook.zoom.us/j/478142498 or by email at: email@example.com
Academic Integrity Statement: Each student must pursue his or her academic goals honestly and be personally accountable for all submitted work. Representing another person's work as your own is always wrong. Faculty is required to report any suspected instances of academic dishonesty to the Academic Judiciary. Faculty in the Health Sciences Center (School of Health Technology & Management, Nursing, Social Welfare, Dental Medicine) and School of Medicine are required to follow their school-specific procedures. For more comprehensive information on academic integrity, including categories of academic dishonesty please refer to the academic judiciary website at http://www.stonybrook.edu/commcms/academic_integrity/index.html
Critical Incident Management: Stony Brook University expects students to respect the rights, privileges, and property of other people. Faculty are required to report to the Office of University Community Standards any disruptive behavior that interrupts their ability to teach, compromises the safety of the learning environment, or inhibits students' ability to learn. Faculty in the HSC Schools and the School of Medicine are required to follow their school-specific procedures. Further information about most academic matters can be found in the Undergraduate Bulletin, the Undergraduate Class Schedule, and the Faculty-Employee Handbook.
