In the course Structure and Dynamics of Biomolecules, you will learn how you can visualize the cell’s molecular machines and how this can contribute to a better understanding of how the brain works. The course covers experimental techniques that have sufficient resolution to reveal the atomic structure of proteins. Examples are X-ray crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and electron microscopy.
The course includes lectures of experimental specialists, laboratory exercises and own studies of current literature. During the course, you will prepare lectures, design experiments, write laboratory reports and write a short abstract on a topic of your choice.
