Teaching & PhD


Integrative structural biology for Life sciences

Hands-on course in Biomolecular Integrative Structural Biology by SV experts in the field of X-ray crystallography, cryo-Electron Microscopy, Bio-NMR and protein modeling tools. No previous knowledge in Structural Biology or Bioinformatics is required.

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.
