  • Structural biology serves to decipher the molecular architecture of biomolecules, especially of proteins. Knowledge about the structure of proteins is essential for understanding how they fulfill their biological function and how disease-associated modifications affect their functioning. To visualize the atomic details of proteins, researchers apply sophisticated methods that examine a vast number of identical molecules at the same time. This workshop will cover the most popular techniques of structural biology, X-ray crystallography, cryo-electron microscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and small angle X-ray scattering. Advantages and limitations as well as latest developments will be discussed. The course primarily addresses (PhD) students and postdocs.
