Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions

Content

This advanced lecture course focuses on an in-depth treatment of different aspects of the structure and biology of biological membranes and membrane proteins. We cover a broad range of different aspects including structure of lipid bilayers, biogenesis, prediction and experimental analysis of membrane protein structure, heterologous expression, purification, molecular interactions and structure/function relationships of membrane proteins

Learning Outcome

After this advanced lecture course students will have an in-depth knowledge of the structure and biology of biological membranes and membrane proteins. They will know abaout a broad range of different aspects including structure of lipid bilayers, biogenesis, prediction and experimental analysis of membrane protein structure, heterologous expression, purification, molecular interactions and structure/function relationships of membrane proteins.
