KEMS544 Macromolecular NMR spectroscopy (3–5 cr)
The course will cover how to study structure and function of biological macromolecules, mainly proteins, by multidimensional multinuclear NMR spectroscopy.
The course has been divided in two parts, introduction level (3 ECTS) and advanced level (2 ECTS) course. The student can participate either introduction level course or both courses at the same time (courses are run parallel). However, in order to receive 5 ECTS, participation for both courses is required, that is, there is no possibility to participate advanced level course without completing the introductory level course.
In the advanced level course (2 ECTS), the student obtains more profound level knowledge of various NMR experiments. He/she understands on theoretical and practical level how different NMR experiments work, how them can be analyzed and how to modify the existing experiments and design new ones.
