BIOLOGY AND MAGNETIC RESONANCE

7th Course: Structure and Biophysics - New Technologies
for Current Challenges in Biology and Beyond

ERICE-SICILY: 22 JUNE - 3 JULY 2005


PURPOSE OF THE COURSE:

The course will focus on the interface between structural biology, biochemistry and biophysics, in which lies the fertile ground of drug development, biotechnology and new materials. The goal of this Advanced Study Institute is to provide a crossroads to discuss new technologies in structural biology and biophysics, and their implications for drug discovery and materials development. The ASI will allow intense discussion between students and lecturers, with a comprehensive overview of a complex, critical and fast-moving area of modern research.

Specific topics:

Principles of NMR
Principles of X-ray diffraction
Dynamics and refinement
Analysis and Computation in NMR
NMR and crystallography of RNA, proteins and their complexes
Protein folding
Metalloenzymes
New methods in NMR and crystallography
Single-molecule analysis of biomolecules
Solid state NMR
New technologies in fighting CBRN agents
Viral and bacterial RNA drug targets
Membrane protein NMR and peptide drugs
Methods for studying protein dynamics
Biochemical and spectroscopic methods
Novel NMR methods for membrane proteins
Structural genomics of critical pathogens
Technology transfer in US
Cutting edge NMR for the future
Perspectives for the future of biophysics
Partner Country priorities
