8th Course: Biophysics and the Challenges of Emerging Threats

ERICE-SICILY: 19-30 JUNE 2007


PURPOSE OF THE COURSE:

This course will provide an overview of biophysical and structural methods in biology. It will present technologies related to pathogen detection and treatment using these methods. Furthermore, it will teach basic principles and demonstrate concrete examples, encouraging technology growth and transfer to partner countries.

Specific topics:

Principles of NMR spectroscopy
Principles of X-ray diffraction
Nucleic acid chemistry
Molecular dynamics and other computational approaches
Use of NMR data to calculate structures
Viral pathogens
Bacterial pathogens
Antivirals
Ribosome structure
Translational mechanism and antibiotics
New technologies to study proteins
Computational biology
Principles of Catalysis
Solid state NMR
Peptides as drugs
Membrane proteins as drug targets
Single-molecule methods
Novel pathogen detection
Structure-based drug design in biotechnology
New approaches to study metaloenzymes
NMR studies of pathogenic proteins
Coupling genomics and structural studies
Discovery and biophysics
Developing novel technologies

Tutorials:

Pathogenesis of bioterror agents
Computational biology and experiment
Technology and the environment
Spectroscopic approaches
Roundtable and tutorial on genome-wide approaches and biophysics
Student-lecturer discussion on future perspectives
Student presentations including a poster session
