The course will focus on the importance of protein quality control and introduce methodologies that can be used to assess and improve sample quality... OverviewSpeakers ProgrammePractical informationSponsorsMedia kit Overview Please see EMBL’s COVID-19 safety policy for testing and other requirements to attend this on-site course. Course overview Purified proteins are used in various types of scientific experiments and fields. For example, in structural biology insights into the functional mechanisms can be obtained by elucidating the 3D molecular structure of proteins and protein complexes using technologies such as X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM and NMR. In biochemistry and biophysics, interactions with other proteins, nucleic acids and small molecules can be studied by determining affinities and specificities. Proteins can function as antigens to generate specific antibodies or as reagents in cell biology experiments. Furthermore, recombinant proteins can be used as tool molecules in genomics, chemical biology and microscopy assays....
