Course Description

The course is designed to give a thorough training in the principles and practice of kinetics methods as applied to biological macromolecules. Transient kinetics is a well-established field which has made major contributions to the understanding of both the mechanisms of enzymes and to the central role of protein-ligand and protein-protein interactions in biological processes

such as signalling, motility, gene expression, protein folding and DNA replication. Over the past two decades, single molecule methods and more recently, microscale thermophoresis have been developed to complement and advance these fields. Yet these approaches remain dominated by specialists despite the wide availability of the equipment. Due to these more recent developments, we have shifted the focus of the course – reducing elements of relaxation methods and expanding on the single molecule content, plus including microscale thermophoresis. The course is designed to increase the awareness and accessibility of these methods to a wider group of biologists.
