|Abstract||In this course, the students will explore the quite new topic of biomolecular condensates.|
Concepts and tools from biology, chemistry, biophysics and soft materials will be used, on one hand, to develop an understanding of the biological properties and functions of biomolecular condensates in health and disease, while, on the other, to inspire new materials.
|Objective||In terms of content, you, the student, after a general introduction to the topic, will learn about milestone works and current research questions in the young field of biomolecular condensates (properties, functions and applications) from an interdisciplinary point of view in a course which is a combination of literature (presentations given by pairs of students with different scientific backgrounds) and research seminars (presentations given by the lecturers all active experts in the field, with different backgrounds and expertise).|
As to the skills, you will have the opportunity to learn how to critically read and evaluate scientific literature, how to give scientific presentations to an interdisciplinary audience (each presentation consisting of an introduction, critical description of the results and discussion of their significance) and substantiate your statements, acquire a critical mindset (pros/cons of chosen approaches/methods and limitations, quality of the data, solidity of the conclusions, possible follow-up experiments) that allows you to ask relevant questions and actively participate to the discussion.
With the final presentation you will have the unique opportunity to interact closely with the interdisciplinary group of lecturers (all internationally well-established experts) who will guide you in the choice of a subtopic and related literature.
|Content||In the last decade a new kind of compartments within the cell, the so-called biomolecular condensates, have been observed. This discovery is radically changing our understanding of the cell, its organization and dynamics. The emerging picture is that the cytoplasm and nucleoplasm are highly complex fluids that can (meta)stably segregate into membrane-less sub-compartments, similarly to emulsions.|
The topic of biomolecular condensates goes beyond the boundaries of traditional disciplines and needs a multi-pronged approach that levers on, and cross-fertilizes, biology, physical chemistry, biophysics and soft materials to develop a proper understanding of the properties, functions in health and disease (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, etc.), as well as possible applications of these biomolecular condensates.
Each week the lecture will consist of:
1) a short literature seminar: Pairs of students from different scientific backgrounds will be formed and assigned beforehand to present milestone literature to the class and facilitate the ensuing discussion. In the first class the pairs will be formed, the milestone papers made known to the whole class and assigned to the pairs.
2) a research seminar: the presentation of the milestone literature will serve as the introduction to the lecture by one of the lecturers of the course on their own state-of-the-art research in the field.
|Lecture notes||The presentations will be made available after the lectures.|
|Literature||The milestone papers will be provided in advance.|
For the final examination, the students will be helped by the lecturers in identifying a research topic and related literature.

|529-0481-00L||Advanced High Resolution Molecular Spectroscopy||W||1 credit||1V||S. Albert|
|Abstract||The course teaches advanced topics in molecular spectroscopy: techniques for analysing rotationally and rovibrationally resolved spectra will be discussed, the basics of FTIR spectroscopy will be reviewed, and the sources which may be used in high resolution infrared spectroscopy will be described. The fields in which high resolution infrared /THz spectroscopy is applied will also be reviewed.|
|Objective||The students will understand how to use the tools needed to analyze simple highly resolved spectra. They will become familiar with experimental techniques in high resolution molecular spectroscopy and will understand how molecular spectroscopy can be applied to solve problems with respect to atmospheric pollutants and the detection of molecules in interstellar space.|
|Content||The students will learn how to record rotationally and rovibrationally resolved spectra in the THz and IR frequency range. For that purpose state-of-the-art sources like synchrotrons, FELs and other THz sources will be discussed. In this context, the basics of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy will also be reviewed. The analysis of such spectra with interactive programs will then be explained. Finally, applications of high resolution molecular spectroscopy in the field of atmospheric and interstellar chemistry will be discussed. The identification and the quantitative determination of atmospheric pollutants will be discussed in detail. In addition, the identification of interstellar molecules in the context of the origin of life will be reviewed. The question of the identification of the interstellar unidentified infrared bands and of the interstellar diffuse bands will also be addressed. Finally, high resolution molecular spectroscopy of chiral molecules in the context of molecular parity violation will be discussed|

|529-0485-00L||Calculating Free Energy Differences from Molecular Simulation: Theory and Practical Applications||W||1 credit||1V||N. Hansen|
|Abstract||Theoretical analysis as well as issues of practical implementation of state of the art free energy methods.|
|Objective||Recognition of the concepts that underlie the different approaches devised for the determination of free energies|
|Content||A wide variety of fundamental chemical quantities such as binding or equilibrium constants, solubilities, partition coefficients, and adsorption coefficients are related to the difference in free energy between particular (non)physical states of a system. A maze of computational techniques to calculate free energies is nowadays available that differ in efficiency and accuracy. However, most of them are rooted in a few basic ideas. In the lecture state of the art methods are discussed in light of these basic ideas.|
