Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The lecture deals with the methodology and 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.
During the exercises students will perform the protein crystallisation and collection of x-ray diffraction data. In addition, they will solve the protein crystal structure by applying single-wavelength anomalous dispersion with the anomalous signal from sulfur atom (S-SAD). Finally, they will build, refine and evaluate the determined protein structure.

Assessment and permitted materials

The evaluation consists of different performances: active participation and results obtained, written report, theoretical knowledge including final exam.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
