Bionanotools (N9)

Bionanotools (N9)


In this course the student will be introduced to a number of analytical measurement and analytical tools used for the structure-function analysis of biological macromolecules – or biological nanomachines such as functional proteins, membrane pumps and channels. Through a combination of lectures and exercises/demonstrations the course will describe X-ray crystallography, liquid- and solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, (cryo-) electron microscopy (EM), confocal microscopy, surface plasmon resonance, circular dichroism (CD), mass spectroscopy, scanning probe microscopy (SPM), small-angle scattering of X-rays and neutrons (SAXS and SANS), and fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET). The course will furthermore describe various numerical methods for protein structure analysis and prediction.

This course is organized in collaboration between the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics and the Institute of Anatomy.
