EMBO Global Exchange Lecture Course, June 2016, Korea

#1 Post by AL » 2015.12.21 18:56


Structural and biophysical methods for biological macromolecules in solution
EMBO Global Exchange Lecture Course, 19 - 26 June 2016, Suwon, South Korea

The Course covers the major structural and biophysical techniques for characterization of high and low resolution structure and structural transitions, macromolecular complex formation, protein folding, stability, interactions and enzymatic mechanisms:
  • small-angle X-ray and neutron scattering (SAXS/SANS),
    nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR),
    static and dynamic light scattering (SLS/DLS),
    analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC),
    differential and isothermal calorimetry (DSC/ITC),
    spectroscopic approaches,
    cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM),
    bioinformatic tools to analyse protein-protein interactions.
Special attention will be paid to interdisciplinary approaches, where the synergistic use of complementary techniques (including macromolecular crystallography) leads to a comprehensive description of macromolecular systems.

The course will be held at the Sungkyunkwan University Natural Sciences Campus in Suwon, Korea.

50 participants will be selected to attend the course. The registration fee of 120 euro (₩150000) will be requested from the academic participants covering the event materials, lodging and meals. Applicants from industry are expected to pay a 1000 euro (₩1250000) fee.

Application deadline: April 10th 2016.
Payment is not required for applying. Only accepted participants will have to pay the registration fee.
