For Computer Modeling for Drug Design:

**The AST students may attend whichever lab periods they wish in order to complete the computational experiments -- depending on how efficiently they work, that should be 4-5 lab periods.
In order to receive credit for the completing the course, the AST students will need to complete, satisfactorily, all of the short post-lab reports associated with the computational experiments. By carrying out the computational experiments and completing the post-lab reports, they will have gained sufficient experience with modern drug design software to be able to apply these tools to problems in their research as desired.
