This course is intended for graduate students and 3rd year undergraduates or higher with an interest in analytical biochemistry. In this course we will survey modern biophysical techniques for the characterization of biological macromolecules in the solution state. We will cover hydrodynamic theory of transport processes in solution, and discuss practical applications of these techniques to current problems in biophysics, biochemistry, structural and molecular biology, and provide a comprehensive introduction into solution biophysics. Students will gain insight in how these methods can be used for problem solving in modern research.
The course will be presented via video conference (using Zoom) in collaboration with the University of Montana in Missoula. The course will be team-taught by experts in fluorescence spectroscopy, small angle X-ray/neutron scattering, molecular dynamics, and analytical ultracentrifugation.
