Dear colleague,

It is a pleasure for us to invite you to participate in this Practical Course on integrated approaches to biomolecular interactions.

The demand for a broader integration of technical approaches to tackle weak biological interactions is nowadays increasing. Hence, this practical course aims to foster the application of quantitative complementary biophysical techniques among early-career biochemists. For this purpose we rely on the know-how accumulated by the staff involved in the Biomolecular Interaction Platform at cicCartuja and several companies collaborating with it, such as TA instruments, Horiba and Affinimeter. The course will provide hands-on training in experiments designed to cover protein ligand interactions and protein-protein interactions by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Isothermal Titration Calorimetry and Surface Plasmon resonance. The quality of samples will be tested by molecular mass by MALDI-TOF spectrometry. Additionally, a session will be devoted to global fit analysis to interaction models.

Due to the characteristics of the practical course, a limited number of students will be enrolled. A number of grants by FEBS are available to foster participation.

Looking forward welcoming you to Sevilla.

Antonio Díaz Quintana,

Chair of the Advanced Practical Course.
