Educational Modules

Self-Assembly in Nanoconfinement

This lecture introduces concepts related to self-assembly and ionic interactions in nanoconfinement using nanoBIO tools. The lecture is part of a course, Nanoscale Simulations and Engineering Applications, that introduces students to the basics and applications of modeling and simulation to understand nanoscale phenomena.

Workshop Presentations

Winter Interactive nanoBUO Workshop series

The Winter Interactive nanoBIO Workshop will walk students and researchers through how to understand a variety of biological problems using simulations based on cloud-based tools on nanoHUB or other easy to use platforms.
