MBN Research Center offers hands-on tutorials for the MBN Explorer and MBN Studio users and training courses in application of the software in different areas of academic and industrial research, advanced interdisciplinary courses on MBN Science and related areas of theoretical and computational physics.

The hands-on tutorials are aimed at training MBN Explorer and MBN Studio users in the application of various physical models and computational approaches for simulations of MesoBioNano- systems and investigations of their structural and dynamic properties at the atomic level of detail. The training course is based on several practical exercises to be done with the software packages. In particular, the case studies of atomic clusters, nanoparticles, biomolecular systems, nanomaterials, composite materials, hybrid molecular systems, crystalline systems, thermo-mechanical properties of materials, and multiscale phenomena are discussed. Relevant physical concepts, mathematical techniques, and computational methods are introduced, including force fields and algorithms used in molecular modeling, molecular dynamics, and Monte Carlo simulations on parallel computers.

The tutorial is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers specialising in theoretical and computational physics, chemistry, biophysics, nano- and material science who seek to extend their research, theoretical and computational skills.

Individuals or organizations willing to order a hands-on tutorial or a training course are welcome to contact us.
