Last 18-21 October 2011, Dr. Rhonald Lua of Lichtarge Computational
Biology Lab of Baylor College of Medicine gave a workshop on Protein
Bioinformatics entitled, "Evolution-directed visualization using PyMOL
and docking using AutoDock Vina." The workshop was held at the
PLDT-CTC Building Room 215 in Ateneo de Manila University. The
workshop was organized by Dr. Nina Rosario Rojas of the Chemistry
Department and was attended by about twenty participants. This
workshop was under a project of the Commission on Filipinos Overseas.
Dr. Rhonald Lua finished his B.S. Physics in Ateneo de Manila
University last 1996 and graduated Cum Laude. A year after, he earned
