PHY 416 - Macromolecular Crystallography[3 credit(s)]
Prerequisites: PHY 221, PHY 222 or PHY 231, PHY 232, or PHY 241/243/243H, PHY 242/244/244H and MTH 181, MTH 182. Macromolecular crystallography is at the heart of the genomics age allowing the determination of the three-dimensional structures of proteins that genomes code for. This information is used to determine and understand their function and develop new drugs. Students learn the fundamentals of diffraction theory, crystal properties and the basic concepts of solving the structures of macromolecular crystals. The course is appropriate for advanced undergraduates majoring in physics, chemistry and biology.
