From Protein to Cell

2018-2019
Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

Final attainment:
The student knows:
• Principles and applications of protein over-expression, purification,
structure, function, and inhibition as well as the function of
antibiotics as protein inhibitors.
The student can:
• Apply protein bio-chemistry methods (protein over-expression, affinity
chromatography, spectro-photometry, fluorescence, protein labeling
methods, gel electrophoresis, activity tests).

Inhoud vak

The course consists of a mixture of lectures, practicals, computer
sessions and individual study. We will cover
concepts/methods/techniques that you can use to study a broad range of
relevant questions, e.g:
• How can I produce a protein using bacteria?
• How can I purify a protein?
• How can I investigate structure and function of a protein?
• How can I predict structure and function of a protein?
• How do antibiotics work as protein inhibitors?
• How can I design my experimental strategy?
• Which factors I have to think about to make my experiment
successful?

Onderwijsvorm
