The intention of the course is to provide practical training in important aspects, and current state-of-the-art topics of solution NMR applied to biological macromolecules, including structure determination and studying ligand binding and dynamics from NMR data.

The emphasis of this course is on setting up experiments on the spectrometer (optimizing parameters, pulse programs), on processing and analyzing the NMR data and on structure calculations. State-of-the-art methods and approaches are taught by international experts in the field and new/promising developments will be included such as in-cell NMR methods and the utility of dynamic and kinetic information from NMR for understanding biomolecular function.

The course is aimed at doctoral students and postdocs who have some working knowledge of NMR theory, i.e., product operator formalism, and who understand the basic principles of NMR and pulse sequences. Possible candidates should have the level of knowledge of students that have participated in lecture courses and workshops on NMR theory and methods.
