Summary

 

Protein Science - LS2-MSF2

Aims

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 
photosynthesis.

Role

Course Leader

Proteins and Enzymes - LS1-PE

Aims

This course, which runs throughout the second half of the first year, builds on the fundamental concepts covered in Biological Chemistry to give more detailed insights into the molecular processes occurring in living systems. We intend that by the end of the year students will have a good understanding of biochemical reactions and be able to recognise functionally significant parts of complex molecular machinery. They should have an appreciation of molecular recognition and some understanding of the exquisite degree of control over chemical reactivity that must be exercised in living systems.

Role

Lecturer

Integrative Systems Biology - LS3-ISB

Aims

To provide an overview over quantitative experimental methodologies and methods for their interpretation in order to study biological processes at the whole system level.

Role

Lecturer

Medical Glycobiology - LS3-MG

Aims

The aim of this course is to give undergraduate students in-depth knowledge of the field of glycobiology, with an emphasis in on biomedically related topics. The goal is to develop a molecular understanding of carbohydrate-receptor interactions in cell-cell, cell-matrix and cell-pathogen interactions. Students will also be introduced to therapeutic applications and techniques used for the characterisation of glycosylation.
