Courses

Integrative structural biology for Life sciences

(Coursebook not yet approved by the section)

Recombinant protein expression in animal cells for appli-cations in medicine and structural biology

Cultivated animal cells are important hosts for the production of recombinant proteins for biochemical and structural studies and for use as therapeutics. The course will provide an overview of the methods for the production and characterization of recombinant proteins from animal cells.

Methods: from disease models to therapy

This course will describe methods underlying translational approaches from disease modeling and characterization to therapeutic applications. The presented techniques will be complemented by hands-on rotations in the technological platforms of the School of Life Sciences.

Methods: omics in biomedical research

High-throughput methodologies broadly called Omics allow to characterize the complexity and dynamics of any biological system. This course will provide a general description of different methods related to the Omics field followed by hands-on rotations in participating technological platforms.
