What is this course about?

The course aims to provide the theoretical background of popular biophysical methods that are often used in relation to Structural Biology research, and practical experience both in performing experiments and in analysing the resulting data.

Why should I attend?

The rationale behind an extended kit of experiments to characterise macromolecules and their interactions will be explained. You will be shown how to perform and analyse the related experiments in dedicated practical sessions.
