Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course consists of three parts:
1. Application of optical methods to protein stability (chemical and thermal denaturation followed by absorption, fluoresence, circular dichroism and calorimetry).
2. Applications of NMR spectroscopy to relevant problems of molecular biology. The basic principles of the methodology are explained and demonstrated with practical applications to structural biology.
3. Macromolecular Crystallography. Basic principles of crystallisation and structure solution.

Assessment and permitted materials

Compulsory attendance; the evaluation consists of different performances: active participation and results obtained, written report, theoretical knowledge including final exam (the percentage of the subgrades will be announced by the course leader); each of the subgrades must have a positive evaluation.
