Molecular and Cellular Biology/Structural Biology/Biochemistry track

The complex processes underlying biological processes cannot be understood without a clear vision of the molecules involved. The topics addressed by the MCSB track labs include
 
  • the resolution of the structure of proteins individually and in complexes
  • the determination of the functional activity of proteins
  • the evaluation of the effects of changes in protein sequence and structure on cells
