The objective of the course is to provide a deep understanding of physical chemistry applied to biological problems in order to understand structure and function. The course should make the student familiar with the most important methods of studying and interpreting protein structure and function (protein x-ray crystallography, SAXS, NMR, cryo-EM, ITC and DSC, SPR, analytical ultracentrifugation and selected methods of mass spectrometry).
