Dear Colleagues,

we are very pleased to  announce


Structural and biophysical methods for biological macromolecules in solution

EMBO Global Exchange Lecture Course, 4 - 10 May 2015, Taipei, Taiwan




The main objective of the Course is to teach the young PhD students and
postdocs from all areas of biology the methods applicable to study
biological macromolecules in solution. We aim at a comprehensive coverage of
the field including the major structural and biophysical techniques employed
for the characterization of high and low resolution structure and structural
transitions, macromolecular complex formation, protein folding and
stability, protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions and enzymatic
mechanisms. The Course will include lectures on small-angle X-ray and
neutron scattering (SAXS/SANS), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), static and
dynamic light scattering (SLS/DLS), analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC),
differential and isothermal calorimetry (DSC/ITC) and spectroscopic
approaches. Bioinformatic tools to analyze protein-protein interactions will
be considered, and the joint use of the solution characterization methods
with the major non-solution structural techniques including macromolecular
crystallography (MX) and electron microscopy (EM) will be covered. Special
attention will be paid to interdisciplinary approaches, where the
synergistic use of complementary techniques leads to a comprehensive
description of macromolecular systems.


The course will be held at the Institute of Biological Chemistry, Academia
Sinica, in Taipei.


A maximum of 50 participants will be selected to attend the course.

The registration fee of 40 Euro (NT$ 1600) will be requested from the
academic participants covering the event materials, lodging and local meals.

Applicants from industry are expected to pay a 1000 Euro (NT$ 40000) fee.


The Course is oriented towards applicants active in structural biology,
mostly late Ph.D. students and early post-docs but more senior scientists,
depending on circumstances, could also participate.

Students working in Taiwan or Taiwanese students working abroad will be
given preference but all applications are welcome.


Application deadline for the Course: February, 15th, 2015
