About the Practical Course
High throughput methods are powerful tools for addressing protein expression, purification and crystallization challenges, veritable bottlenecks for structural and biochemical studies. The goal of this EMBO practical course is to provide the students with a broad view on the latest HT available techniques, how to implement the protocols inhouse and how to access HT equipment through available platforms in the EU for protein production and crystallisation. The students will learn HT experiment design, equipment use, and data analysis for reaching their goals with their target proteins.
HT techniques are in a constant evolution adapting to new challenges. Accordingly, we include practicals covering methods on HT protein-protein interaction analysis, Cryo-EM sample preparation and HT fluorescent based methods for enzymatic activity assessment and drug screening. An updated list of speakers and new themes will engage sound experts on HT methods as well as outstanding scientist covering a broad range of structural techniques and exciting scientific topics.
About EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).
Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
