Structural and biophysical methods for biological macromolecules in solution

Wednesday, October 14, 2020 - 09:00 to Tuesday, October 20, 2020 - 19:00

Structural methods applicable to solutions facilitate structural and functional studies on biological macromolecules under close to native conditions. Fully exploiting this opportunity allows one to extract the maximum amount of biologically meaningful information and to relate the structural results to the function of the system. The main objective of this EMBO course is to train graduate students and postdocs in state-of-the-art methods to study biological macromolecules in solution. We aim at a comprehensive coverage of the major structural and biophysical techniques employed for characterization of high and low resolution structure and structural transitions, macromolecular complex formation, protein folding, stability, interactions and enzymatic mechanisms.

Learning goal: 

Biological researchers who want to learn more about the application of structural information in their work and how to use some of the key bioinformatics resources that are available.
