Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is offered to students of any study field.
The capacity limit for the course is 24 student(s).
Current registration and enrolment status: enrolled: 6/24, only registered: 0/24, only registered with preference (fields directly associated with the programme): 0/24
Course objectives
The aim of the course is learning students how to operate selected freely available web servers, programs and databases applicable to the study of structure, dynamics and function of proteins.
Learning outcomes
On successful completion of the course, students will be able to:
operate selected freely available web servers, programs and databases applicable to the study of structure, dynamics and function of biomacromolecules, interaction of proteins with proteins, nucleic acids and small organic molecules.
visualize structure of biomolecules
identify functionally relevant regions of proteins
predict a structure of proteins and theirs complexes
evaluate an effect of mutation on a protein functi
Syllabus
  • 1. Structure of biomacromolecules – composition, methods for determination, application in biology, visualization.
  • 2. Databases of experimental structures – deposition, retrieval and evaluation of structures of macromolecules; selected structural databases.
  • 3. Models of structures – databases of models, methods for model quality evaluation, preparation of models.
  • 4. Prediction of structure of macromolecular complexes.
  • 5. Dynamics of macromolecules – analysis of molecular dynamics and its databases.
  • 6. Protein-protein complexes – evaluation of complex, analysis of interactions; databases.
  • 7. Protein-DNA complexes – evaluation of complex, analysis of interactions; databases.
  • 8. Protein-ligand complexes – evaluation of complex, analysis of interactions; databases.
  • 9. Analysis of protein structure – identification of important regions: binding/active sites, transport pathways, flexible regions, catalytic amino acids.
  • 10. Modification of protein structure – evaluation of effect of mutation on protein structure and function.
  • 11. Application of structural biology – biological research, drug design and development, design of biocatalyst.
