Eager to know what it is? All you need is Boltzmann The core concept of the whole course … Continue reading “Course Review: Biophysical Chemistry”

Our Future is no longer “Crystallized”

After the course Introduction to Bioinformatics, we now switch our focus from protein structural prediction to understanding protein physics and functions. Therefore, a visit to the national facility of Cryo-EM at the Science For Life Laboratory is a part of our new course Biophysical Chemistry. We also got the opportunity to talk to the scientists … Continue reading “Our Future is no longer “Crystallized””
