CHEM 8215 INTRODUCTION TO MOLECULAR MODELING (3 credits)
The course covers the advantages and limitations of current modeling systems, the criteria for choosing the appropriate modeling system to best solve a given problem and the computer resources needed to conduct the modeling experiments. Following an introduction to the theory behind a variety of modeling systems, students model organic and bioorganic compounds in projects designed to mimic real world applications. (Alternate Spring semesters). (Cross-listed with CHEM 3210).
