CTBP Tech Talks

CTBP Students, Postdocs, Senior Investigators: Tech Talks are back for Fall 2023!

Since many of the groups in CTBP rely heavily the development and application of novel computing tools, we have established a Computing Working Group. This group involves CTBP graduate students, postdocs and faculty, as well as collaborators. The idea is that pooling our collective knowledge can lower technical barriers, which will facilitate more exciting scientific progress. Since many groups are working with openMM, we are beginning with discussions that focus on this particular tool. However, we plan to expand the scope of this working group, as needed.

If you are interested in participating in this working group, please sign up for the listserve HERE.

If you want to participate, please SIGN UP here.

Tech talks are in a hybrid format and they are open to the broader research community. But, you must sign up. Talks will be Wednesdays from 11-12:30 central time. Here is the schedule for upcoming talks.
