Integrative Structural Biology tools for the study of protein-ligand interactions
APPLICATION DEADLINE: June 15, 2014 (attendance is limited to 18 participants; PhD students and young Post-docs will be given priority)
OBJECTIVE OF THE COURSE: to illustrate the added value of a structural biology approach to the study of protein-ligand interactions by combining core methodologies, X-ray Crystallography, NMR, EPR, Carbohydrate Microarrays, ITC and Molecular Modeling from a hands-on perspective, giving emphasis to their limitations and complementarities.
To achieve this, and to better illustrate the integrative context, the students will receive training by working in a study-case, a protein that recognizes and binds to carbohydrates, which will be the focus of the several complementary methodologies. Besides the hands-on training there will be theory lectures where the main theoretical aspects of each technique will be explained always with an emphasis on the complementarity with the other techniques.
APPLICATIONS AND COURSE FEE: The detailed registration info and the online application form are available here.
Fee is €450 and includes attendance, course documentation, coffee breaks (all course days), lunches (all course days), course dinner (date to be announced) and accommodation (single room inc. breakfast in Lisboa Almada Hotel; check-in: July 12; check-out: July 19).
