The PhD course in "integrated structural biology" deals with two state of the ar approaches used currently to elucidate protein structures: Cryo-Electron Microscopy and X-ray crystallography. About half of the course will show how these techniques work with scientific presentations will be given by distinguished international scientists. The other half will be based on hands-on practicals in which participants will be able to learn: Protein crystallization and crystal handling; Cryo-EM image collection; protein structure visualization by state of the art programs. The course is intended for PhD students without a specific background in biochemistry and structural biology.
