This course offers both taught components and extensive research experience for students with backgrounds in biological, chemical and physical sciences. It is particularly suitable for those who wish to gain both theoretical and practical research experience in the techniques of structural biology or biocomputing.
Our research areas include:
Molecular chaperones, amyloid fibrils, pore-forming toxins M. tuberculosis, cytoskeletal proteins Signal transduction, bacterial pathogenesis and DNA replication Electron microscopy, cytoskeletal dynamics and function Electron cryo-microscopy; electron tomography and image processing; development of methods for recognition and separation of heterogeneous molecular complexes; bacteriophage assembly; structural analysis of the transcription factor p53 Hsp90, the kinetochore DNA repair Protein folding and misfolding, in particular at the point of synthesis on intact ribosomes Viral protein-nucleic acid interactions.
