Protein Structure and Function

The module introduces protein structure at the primary, tertiary and quaternary levels, as well as the properties of amino acids and chemistry of polypeptides. Practical sessions will cover visualisation of protein structures using PyMol, building peptide structures and viewing examples of protein interactions. The module also includes web practicals on protein folds and molecular forces, amino acidas, peptide bonds, and accessing web-based databases of protein structure. There will also be a visit to the structural biology facilities on the University of Reading Campus.
