Ligand-binding Theory and Practice

Course summary: This course will provide basic training in the principles of ligand-binding theory, and will offer participants a chance to analyse their own macromolecular interaction systems using the contemporary advanced methods (SPR, ITC UV-vis, fluorescence spectroscopies, gel filtration), guided by lecturers and tutors who are expert in the design, execution, and analysis of these experiments. Additional lecturers will present other contemporary experimental ligand-binding methods (NMR, MS) and contemporary thinking on the phenomenon of allostery.
