Modern methods to study biomolecular interactions
3 – 7 September 2018
- Kamenice 753/5, 625 00 Brno, A35/211 (lectures), A4/118 (practicals)
The rapid development of techniques for biomolecular interaction analysis results in wide portfolio of methods being used - from basic yes-no detection to the sophisticated characterisation of thermodynamics and kinetics of biomolecular interactions. One week-course will be dedicated to various theoretical and practical aspects of the interactions on a molecular level.
Type of event: Workshop
Core facility: Biomolecular Interaction and Crystallization
Assessment report after Summer school
The second event in fall 2018 focused on various methods which can be used to study biomolecular interactions. 43 participants had the opportunity to attend 7 lectures (during the first day of the workshop) given by 5 expert speakers from abroad and 1 from Masaryk university. Second and third day were tutored by CF BIC staff and was dedicated to hands-on part where participants were able to see and even able to set up the measurements on AUC, ITC and MST. Very important part of the workshop was also data evaluation, troubleshooting and most common issues for each technique. Such event with various techniques shown is very important for young scientists being able to decide in the future, which technique is most suitable for their studied samples and which technique is the least suitable and when it would be better to avoid such technique. The summer school was organized with the support of BISON project and CIISB project.
