Hours & Credits
The student knows: Principles and applications of protein over-expression, purification, structure, function, and inhibition as well as the function of antibiotics as protein inhibitors.
The student can: Apply protein bio-chemistry methods (protein over-expression, affinity chromatography, spectro-photometry, fluorescence, protein labeling methods, gel electrophoresis, activity tests).
The course consists of a mixture of lectures, practicals, computer sessions and individual study.
We will cover concepts/methods/techniques that you can use to study a broad range of relevant questions, e.g:
- How can I produce a protein using bacteria?
- How can I purify a protein?
- How can I investigate structure and function of a protein?
- How can I predict structure and function of a protein?
- How do antibiotics work as protein inhibitors?
- How can I design my experimental strategy?
- Which factors I have to think about to make my experiment successful?
The course consists of a mixture of lectures, practical’s, computer sessions, and individual study.
