PRACTICAL COURSE ON REACTION KINETICS OF BIOLOGICAL MACROMOLECULES

Patrick Sticher-2
  Dear colleagues,

please be informed that online applications are accepted for the
following course:

9TH NCCR PRACTICAL COURSE ON REACTION KINETICS OF BIOLOGICAL MACROMOLECULES

January 10 - 14, 2011
Zürich, Switzerland
http://www.structuralbiology.uzh.ch/nccrcourse2011.asp

Course topics include:
General introduction to reaction kinetics, reaction kinetics of enzymes,
techniques for measuring fast reactions on the millisecond time scale,
spectroscopic methods for following reactions between proteins and
ligands and conformational transitions in proteins
Fluorescence anisotropy measurements, FRET-measurements, single-molecule
fluorescence spectroscopy, kinetics of protein folding, evaluation of
kinetic data, topical examples from ongoing research projects (invited
guest speakers).
The main focus of the course will be on practical work in small learning
groups.

The course is primarily directed to PhD students and postdocs working or
planning to work on the reaction mechanism of proteins in vitro.
Selection will be based on scientific CV, a questionnaire and
recommendation letter.

Participants will be invited to suggest their own research protein for
course experiments.

Interested candidates are encouraged to apply online on
http://www.structuralbiology.uzh.ch/nccrcourse2011_application.asp.
Application deadline will be October 18, 2010. We will be able to accept
20 participants to this course.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any further information.

Best regards,
Patrick Sticher
