Previous courses

Advances in Enzyme Regulation (5 HEC)

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.

  • Organizer: Peter Bozhkov and Galia Zamaratskaia
  • Time: Autumn 2018
  • Expected no. participants: 15

Practical course on Protein Expression and Purification (3 HEC)

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.
