Overview

The quality control training school: From sample preparation and optimisation towards biophysical characterisation and integrative structural studies

This training school is aimed at structural biologists who want to improve their skills in sample analysis and optimization for structural techniques, in particular Cryo-EM. The course will cover different biochemical and biophysical techniques such as chromatography, dynamic and static light scattering, viscometry, circular dichroism, mass spectrometry, and differential scanning fluorimetry. Hands on training will be provided on basic quality control of protein as well as buffer and storage optimization. Trainees will be allowed to bring their own samples to use during the practical sessions. These sessions will be complemented with dry practical tutorials on purification strategies as well as on the choice of molecular scale biophysical measurements to complement structural determination.
