The following topics will be covered:
Protein Quality Control with Focus on Differential Scanning Calorimetry
Introduction to flow cytometry
Affinity, avidity, binding kinetics
Cell-based assays for affinity analysis
Surface Plasmon Resonance to Determine Affinity and Kinetics of Biomolecular Interactions
More Biophysical Techniques to Study Biomolecular Interactions
Mass spectrometry (MS) techniques for biomolecules
Protein identification via MS
Quantification and analysis of posttranslational modifications via MS
HANDS-ON (please see Anmerkung/Note)
- Previous knowledge expected
Basic knowledge of biochemistry, in particular protein biochemistry.
- Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)
This course will provide an overview of state-of-the-art techiques to characterize a protein sample in a comprehensive way. One focus will be on the characterization of biomolecular interactions and the available approaches to study them. The course will convey the theoretical concepts and also provide the possibility of hands-on training for selected methods (mass spectrometry, surface plasmon resonance spectroscopy, flow cytometry).
