CCK-14: Hackathon-2

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Please join us for our next “Comp Chem Kitchen” CCK Hackathon, 10 am – 5 pm on Thursday, December 13th, 2018, in the Computer Suite, Department of Biochemistry, South Parks Road, Oxford. Speakers from the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre will be present to help out on projects using the the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) Python API.

The CSD is the world’s oldest database of small molecule and metal-organic crystal structures, with approaching a million entries. If you’re interested in small molecules or even how they interact with proteins, or you want to learn more about Python and cheminformatics, please come along.

Registration now open, but places are limited, so please register before December 11th, 2018.
