The objective of the course is to introduce methods used in NMR spectroscopy for structure determination of biomolecules and for studying protein-ligand interactions. The course will cover principles and application of two- and three-dimensional NMR experiments along with different isotope labelling schemes that are routinely used for protein structure determination.
INTENDED AUDIENCE: M. Sc/Ph. D students, Scientists from Pharma/Biotech Companies
PREREQUISITES: 1. Mathematics at the 12th Std level,2. Basic Knowledge of Proteins/Nucleic Acids,3. A basic knowledge of NMR would be useful,though not necessary
