This is the course program for Focus on Food and Biomaterials 2022/2023.
Workshop with SLU Holding: "Practical patent (and IP) considerations and activities for a researcher" (6 December 09:00-15:00) Link to program and further information on registration here.
A study visit trip to southern Sweden was organized during October (10-14 October). A report can be found here (pdf).
The course focuses on recent advances in chemical biology, with emphasis on enzyme regulation. You learn about drug design and high-throughput screening, single-molecule imaging and cryo-electron microscopy, guided nanomolecular assemblies and enzyme engineering, N-terminomics and discovery of intrinsically disordered proteins. The program includes two modules: lectures on above topics delivered by world leading experts and training in writing research proposals.
The course provides a comprehensive introduction to and hands-on training in protein expression and purification with focus on eukaryotic expression system -Pichia pastoris. You will learn suitable strategies, e.g. recombinant expression system, and methods for preparation of proteins for function and structural studies. The course consists of lectures and laboratory work.
The students will write a complete scientific paper, choose an appropriate journal to which they will submit the finished paper for publication, learn how to communicate with Editors.
(7.5 ECTS credits incl. a written project)
This course provides enhanced knowledge on evolution, and the consequent nutritional needs.
The overall aim of this course is to equip students with skills and tools for effective communication of their scientific results with the media.
The course provides a substantial theoretical basis to understand key experimental techniques used in modern molecular biology research. Current state of the art in omics data analysis is highlighted through case studies, literature studies and demonstrations.
