Viki Brunner wins poster prize

The whole group attended the first INEOS Oxford Institute meeting on Multidisciplinary Approaches to AMR on Tuesday 22 November 2022. Great to hear how different research groups around Oxford (and elsewhere) are helping to tackle AMR. Best of all though, Viki Brunner won one of the poster prizes for her poster on Compensatory mutations in […]

BioExcel Alchemical Free Energy workshop

Last month I was invited to give a talk on using alchemical free energy methods to predict antimicrobial resistance at a workshop in Göttingen organised by the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry on behalf of BioExcel. You can read more about the meeting, which I hope will become a biennial event, here.

Twitter at #ECCMID

A bit over two years ago I was a guest blogger at the US Biophysical Society Annual Meeting in Baltimore. I was disappointed by the lack of Tweeting at the conference – there were 208 tweets using the #bps15 hashtag when I wrote a blog post in which I speculated that, one day, there might […]

Diagnosing antibiotic resistance: future trends?

It is Sunday, I’m in Vienna at the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) congress. As is traditional at all large conventions, I’m sitting on the floor outside one of the halls because the organisers have put one of the most popular sessions (Gram-negative resistance) in one of the smallest rooms. A […]

Analysing Simulation Data CECAM Workshop, Jülich, 14-15 October 2015

This two day workshop on Analysing Simulation Data was part of the larger CECAM Macromolecular Simulation Software Workshop at the Forschnungzentrum, Jülich that I co-organised. It was the second workshop and immediately followed an introductory Software Carpentry workshop. Prior to a few years ago I analysed all my simulation data using either VMD, often by […]

Software Carpentry Workshop, Jülich, 12-13 October 2015

Last week, myself and David Dotson from ASU, ran a 2 day Software Carpentry workshop to kick off the CECAM Macromolecular Simulation Software Workshop at the Forschnungzentrum, Jülich. The idea was to give participants who were less well versed in python and working collaboratively with e.g. git a crash course to bring them up to […]
