Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Provide a comprehensive overview of strategies and methods for protein expression and purification; enable students to choose a better strategy for a given protein.
Highlight the utility of different methods of protein characterization for understanding its structure and function using specific examples.
Explain theoretical background and instrumentation used for protein characterization in amount sufficient for critical interpretation of original research results. Enable students to choose an adequate method for a specific question.
This theoretical course will start with introductory lectures on the basic concepts in structural biology and cover modern approaches and fundamentals of the methods used in recombinant protein expression, purification, biophysical characterization and quality assessment of macromolecular samples as well as cell biophysics approaches. The covered topics include static and dynamic light scattering, fundamentals of X-ray crystallography, absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy techniques (CD, FRET, FLIM, FC(C)S, fluorescence anisotropy, etc), mass spectroscopy and imaging methods (light and electron microscopy).
