Integrative Structural Biology Course

August 21 @ 08:00 September 2 @ 17:00 CEST

InfraLife is preparing a course in integrative structural biology where we cover not only the basics of state-of-the-art structural biology techniques, but also how to combine the information to address a biological question. The course will take place in August 21-September 2, in Lund, Gothenburg and Stockholm.

What will the course cover?

The two week course is a joint effort between the three large-scale research infrastructures SciLifeLab, MAX IV and ESS and additional related platforms. The aim is to give an overview of the structural biology available at the research infrastructures in Sweden. The course will focus on understanding the sample requirements, the nature of structural information that can be obtained and how data from multiple structural biology methods can be combined using e.g. computational chemistry techniques. The course consists of lectures, key note speakers, modelling practicals and facility visits. In addition events allowing time for networking within the group of students, the teachers and other infrastructure personnel, contributing to an expanded professional network.

Technologies and methods

Macromolecular X-ray and neutron crystallography
Small angle X-ray and neutron scattering
Cryo-electron microscopy
Macromolecular nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy
Structural mass spectrometry
Computational chemistry techniques
Biophysical characterization

Who should attend?

The course is open to scientists of all age from academia, health care and industry. Level approximately corresponding to PhD student or postdoc depending on experience. Applicants welcome from Sweden, the Nordics, and other countries.
