C5320 Theoretical Concepts of NMR
The course is offered to students interested in NMR methods applied to biomacromolecules. Basic knowledge of structure of proteins and nucleic acids is expected.
Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
Fields of study the course is directly associated with
there are 9 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
Course objectives
The course will provide introduction to modern NMR techniques which can be applied to extract structural information for small and mid-size biological macromolecules - peptides, proteins, DNA and RNA oligonucleotides. Experimental procedures and computational protocols for determination of three-dimensional structures and dynamics based on NMR data will be discussed. Students who finish the course successfully will understand principles of NMR and its applications to biochemical problems described in original research articles, to analyze NMR experiments and design their modification, to chose the correct approach of solving a given problem, and to combine results of individual approaches to obtain a complex picture of the studied problem. The course is designed so that students who continue to study in a PhD program will be able to apply the learned skills in their own research projects.
