The perfect method to study protein structure would be able to measure atomic positions of molecules, and the forces that govern their interaction with binding partners, in vivo. No such method exists, and consequently most structural studies utilise a number of complementary methods to obtain this information in vitro. The aims of this module are to provide an appreciation of how protein structure and function underpins the design of modified proteins for use in medicine and biotechnology and to demonstrate how proteins can be altered to modify their properties.
Outline Of Syllabus
Continual assessment (worth 20% of the module mark) is by group presentations of relevant scientific papers. The remaining assessment is by a written examination.

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
FMS Schools offering Semester One modules available as ‘Study Abroad’ will, where required, provide an alternative assessment time for examinations that take place after the Christmas vacation. Coursework with submissions dates after the Christmas vacation will either be submitted at an earlier date or at the same time remotely.
The form of assessment will not vary from the original.
