SUMMER SCHOOL POSTPONE

The SUMMER SCHOOL OF MOLECULAR DYNAMIC SIMULATIONS ANALYSIS WITH MOLECULAR PROBES is postpone due to COVID-19 pandemic. We will keep you updated. We are planning to set new deadlines and schedules for the event. Preliminary, the REGISTRATION deadline is set on 1.07.2020 and the SUMMER SCHOOL will take place in October.

AQUA-DUCT – Release 1.0.0 is available

New version of AQUA-DUCT is available (Release 1.0.0) The new version of AQUA-DUCT is combining information from small  ligands tracking and from small ligands local distribution. New modes of AQUA-DUCT MD data processing: normal, sandwich, time-window and consolidator mode. Pond module for hot-spots identification facilitating protein engineering and drug design, Energy barrier approximation. Graphical User

AQUA-DUCT is on the COVER

The picture of the results of AQUA-DUCT analysis were selected for recent cover of Bioinformatic issues! SEE MORE COVER story: Cupin-type phosphoglucose isomerase (PfPGI) from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus catalyzes the reversible isomerization of glucose-6-phosphate to fructose-6-phosphate. Using a 3DM-based bioinformatics approach, a pair of amino acids in the periphery of the PfPGI structure was found to

The AQUA-DUCT was used to study Hyperthermophilic Pyrococcus furiosus Phosphoglucose Isomerase. Recent paper was published in  Biomolecules 2019, 9(6), 212. The cupin-type phosphoglucose isomerase (PfPGI) from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus furiosuscatalyzes the reversible isomerization of glucose-6-phosphate to fructose-6-phosphate. We investigated PfPGI using protein-engineering bioinformatics tools to select functionally-important residues based on correlated mutation analyses. A pair of amino acids in the periphery of

AQUA-DUCT event

AQUA-DUCT will be presented during School on molecular computational biochemistry  that will take on 11-14 March place in the Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry in Kraków. 

AQUA-DUCT event

AQUA-DUCT was presented on FEBS congress during speed-talk session Biochemistry and Signaling held on Monday, July 9, 2018. To facilitate analysis of the behaviour of water (and if necessary other solvent molecules or ligands) we have developed AQUA-DUCT. Here we would like to provide an example of its usage for analysis of water transportation in selected enzymes (epoxide hydrolases

AQUA-DUCT event

AQUA-DUCT software will be presented in September during seventeenth edition of the European Conference on Computational Biology in Athens in Greece. It will be presented during ECCB 2018 Application Track part of he conference. The aim of the track is to give a voice to those who apply computational biology in industry, clinics, governmental organizations, and other fields beyond
