Class Objectives
/Class Outline
Protein Crystallography is the center of the proteomics. This lecture introduces the principle of x-ray crystallograpy as well as how to utilize to structural biology. Moreover,
the solution structure by several spectroscopies are introduced. 
Class Schedule 1. The role of protein x-ray crystallography in proteomics
2. The protein function approached by protein crystallograpy
3. Electron diffraction and Neutron diffraction.
4. Spectroscopy for proteins: 1. Absorption and fluorescence.
5. Spectroscopy for proteins: 2. Circular dichroism (CD) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR)
6. Solution structure by X-ray small angle scattering
7. The evaluation of x-ray crystallographic data on the paper.
8. The base of x-ray diffraction 1: Phases
9. The base of x-ray diffraction 2: Structure Factor
10. The base of x-ray diffraction 3: Reciprocal lattice
11. The base of x-ray diffraction 4: Ewald's sphere
12. The symmetry of the crystal
13. The symmetry of the diffraction pattern and the extinction rule
14. Protein crystallogtaphy by synchrotron radiation, and time resolved structure
