Possible Study achievement

  • Verification of study performance: continuous and active participation in the courses
  • Details of the examination (type, duration, criteria) will be announced at the beginning of the course.


  • The students will hear introductory and summary lectures, read book chapters as well as research and review papers, work on specific problems (exercises), and discuss together and with the teacher the following topics: Protein structure, dynamics, and function. Evolutionary variations in proteins. Molecular recognition and specificity. Protein–protein and protein–ligand interactions. Allostery. Enzyme catalysis. Membrane proteins and transport processes. Recombinant production and chromato-graphic purification of proteins. Biophysical and biochemical methods for protein characterization.
