A worldwide e-Infrastructure for NMR and structural biology

Bio-NMR workshop: Introduction to Biological Solid State NMR

Event Date: 
Mon, 2012-03-19 12:00 - Fri, 2012-03-23 12:30

The workshop “Introduction to Biological Solid State NMR“ is organized and sponsored by the Bio-NMR consortium, and aims at giving the trainee basic knowledge to solid-state NMR spectroscopy in relation to structure determination of solid proteins.

Topics covered will include basic introduction to solid-state NMR spectroscopy, introduction to basic pulse sequences for assignment and structure determination, interpretation of solid- state NMR spectra, assignment, and structure calculation.

The course will involve lectures, experiments on high-field solid-state NMR instrumentation, and computer calculations with focus on a small amyloid fibril system.

Important note

The course is an introductory solid state NMR course for biological samples. Participants should have some biochemical knowledge, and also know basic NMR. But the course *is* introductory, and so the focus is on basic, widely applicable techniques, rather than highly specific cases or new developments.

Lecturers

  • Prof. N. C. Nielsen
  • Prof. T. Vosegaard
  • Dr. M. Bjerring
  • Dr. J. T. Nielsen
