Biomolecular Modeling

This minisymposium will feature talks on parallel algorithms in the emerging field of molecular modeling, focusing specifically on biological areas. Many of the topics fall in the area commonly referred to as structural biology. Significant advances have been made in the last five years in this area. Topics at the cutting edge that have not appeared in any form before will be presented in this minisymposium. The speakers will also make an interesting introduction to some new fields of research.
