purification | detergent properties and interactions with lipids and
proteins | functional analysis of membrane proteins | 2D-crystallization
of membrane proteins | electron microscopy of 2D crystals | image
processing | application of other visualization techniques: AFM,
IR-spectroscopy, solid-state NMR |
The course is directed primarily to PhD students and postdocs with some
