BIOP 8020: Macromolecular Crystallography I
Credits: 2
The course offers in depth coverage of theory and practical applications of X-ray diffraction methods to crystals of biological macromolecules and their complexes. Topics of the first module will cover molecular visualization, crystals and protein crystallization, X-ray diffraction, data collection, data quality, and data reduction. Prerequisite: BIOP 8201/8301, Biophysical Principles
BIOP 8021: Macromolecular Crystallography II
Credits: 2
The course offers in depth coverage of theory and practical applications of X-ray diffraction methods to crystals of biological macromolecules and their complexes. Topics of the second module will cover phase determination, electron density interpretation, refinement, and model validation. Case studies will be presented by the students. Prerequisite: BIOP 8020, Macromolecular Crystallography I
