Application of advanced methods in life sciences

Biomolecular Interactions and Crystallization facility in collaboration with VBCF ProTech facility would like to invite you to series of lectures focusing on application of the advanced methods in life sciences – from CRISPR/Cas9 through the differences among various Tag types to possible methods for function assignment to unknown proteins. There will be presented methods in structural virology as well as challenges in studying membrane interacting peptides.
