Course content

This MRes in Structural Molecular Biology provides in-depth training of all major structural molecular biology techniques including its applications in drug discovery.

In the post-genome era, there is a wealth of information about the genomes of many organisms, including humans. The next challenge is to assign and understand the functions of the final genome products proteins, in particular to understand at the molecular and biochemical level, the functions of disease-linked proteins and proteins that carry out our basic life processes.

This course provides students with the knowledge of all macromolecular structural determination techniques.
