Integrative Structural Biology

This track offers in-depth, interdisciplinary training in various complementary experimental and computational techniques enabling students to identify, analyse and solve biological problems from a fundamentally structural perspective. Students will beable to address the biological question with a suitable suite/combination of biochemical, biophysical and structural biology techniques and will be able to analyze/read structures and draw structure-function relationships to communicate findings.
