Months of entry
This postgraduate course is an excellent introduction to protein crystallography. It is designed for those who are interested in pursuing a career in this exciting and rapidly expanding field, especially in the pharmaceutical industry, or for those who would like to expand and update their existing scientific knowledge.
Up-to-date descriptions of the background, methods and techniques of protein crystallography are explained, and the programme gives the biologically orientated scientist a mainly non-mathematical insight into how protein crystal structures are determined and how results should be judged.
You will learn:
- the fundamentals of protein structure
- x-ray diffraction and symmetry
- how to determine structures using protein crystallography
- how to judge the quality of co-ordinates.
