AbstractIn this block course, students actively participate in ongoing research projects in the research groups of Profs. Allain, Wider and Wüthrich. The students will be tutored in their experimental work by doctoral or postdoctoral students. In addition, the course includes specific lectures that provide the theoretical background for the experimental work, as well as excercises and literature work.
ObjectiveThe course provides first "hands on" insight into applications of NMR spectroscopy in biological sciences. The course should enable the students to understand the potential and limitations of NMR applied to biological problems.
ContentThe topics include studies of proteins, RNA and protein-RNA interactions,

Participation in one of the following projects will be possible:
- NMR of RNA
- NMR of several protein-RNA complexes (hnRNPF, nPTB, SR proteins)
- NMR studies of glycoproteins
- dynamics of protein-RNA complexes
- Segmental isotopic labeling to study multidomain proteins
-Structural and dynamic properties of FtsZ, the bacterial homolog of tubulin
- investigations of the ubiquitinom
- NMR Methods Development
Lecture notesNo script
LiteratureLists of individual reading assignments will be handed out.
