During the course basic concept of interactions between biomolecules (proteins, nucleic acids, and small ligands) are explained. The main focus of the lectures will be on noncovalent interactions. Theoretical methods of their description, such as e.g. phenomenological potentials and their applications will be explained. Students will further gain knowledge of the design of protein-protein, protein-NA or protein-ligand interactions.
Aim of the course -
