EMBO Global Exchange Lecture Course, 4 - 10 May 2015, Taipei, Taiwan
The main objective of the Course is to teach the young PhD students and postdocs from all areas of biology the methods applicable to study biological macromolecules in solution. We aim at a comprehensive coverage of the field including the major structural and biophysical techniques employed for the characterization of high and low resolution structure and structural transitions, macromolecular complex formation, protein folding and stability, protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions and enzymatic mechanisms. The Course will include lectures on
- small-angle X-ray and neutron scattering (SAXS/SANS),
nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR),
static and dynamic light scattering (SLS/DLS),
