Techniques in Structural Molecular Biology
This postgraduate programme provides you with a theoretical background for the techniques commonly used in structural biology. It has been designed for scientists wishing to update their knowledge, or as part of the background studies of research students, particularly those whose undergraduate studies were in a different area. Structural biology allows you to understand how macromolecules work at the atomic level of detail. This is important particularly in designing drugs that act at the molecular level to affect macromolecules. Increasingly, research uses a range of complementary biophysical and structural techniques to study protein-protein interactions. This requires that researchers have some understanding of what all these techniques can achieve. This programme is designed to give the theoretical background required to use this range of methods. Highlights - In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), in a joint submission with UCL, Biological Sciences at Birkbeck were ranked 11th in the UK, with a research environment supporting world-leading and internationally excellent research. - Study by distance learning, wherever you are in the world, with our internet-based teaching. - May be taken as a stand-alone award or as part of our innovative distance learning MSc Structural Molecular Biology. - Part of the Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology, a joint initiative with University College London. - Read about Birkbeck research helping to identify fundamental biological and physical structures and fight disease.
Postgraduate Certificate - PgCert: Degree in science, computing or mathematics, or equivalent qualification, or relevant work experience.
