Protein Science - LS2-MSF2


The aim of the course is to provide an understanding by 2nd years students of the relationship 
between macromolecular structure and function in sufficient detail to place this knowledge in the 
context of earlier courses in biochemistry and to provide the foundation for the treatment of more 
advanced topics in the final year.
In particular the course aims to give the students insight into how the utilization of advanced 
analytical techniques can be used to define protein and other biomolecule structure and how this 
structural insight is used in modern advances in enzymology, protein-ligand interactions and
