The course will provide fundamentals for structural biology applications for redox events in proteins such as post-translational oxidative modifications, aggregation and redox catalysis. A problem-based focus will show how structural biology approaches can be applied to understand and resolve functional aspects in model proteins. Methods to be discuss includes: Resonance Raman, X-ray crystallography, Molecular Dynamics, EPR, Fluorescence, Circular Dichroism , NMR.
