BIOL6082 Skills in Biomolecular NMR

Module Overview

This module will provide students with an introduction to Biomolecular NMR and the insights it can provide in the biochemical/biomedical sciences. The course will provide an introduction into the theoretical background of NMR sufficient to understand the techniques can be used for studying biomolecular structure/function as well as magnetic resonance imaging. The course will contain a taught component supported by practical introduction to NMR spectroscopy.

Aims and Objectives

Module Aims

The module will provide: a) A theoretical background to nuclear magnetic resonance and magnetic resonance imaging. b) A practical understanding of how to setup, conduct and analyse NMR experiments c) A knowledge of modern methods in Biomolecular NMR and Magnetic Resonance Imaging to allow them to critical evaluate their use in the Biosciences.

Learning Outcomes

Learning Outcomes

Having successfully completed this module you will be able to:

  • A theoretical background to nuclear magnetic resonance and magnetic resonance imaging.
  • A practical understanding of how to setup, conduct and analyse NMR experiments.
  • Knowledge of modern methods in Biomolecular NMR and Magnetic Resonance Imaging to allow them to critical evaluate their use in the Biosciences.

Syllabus

Students will acquire a foundation in the theory underlying modern magnetic resonance. The students will apply this knowledge, learning how to prepare samples for NMR spectroscopy, calibrating the instrument and processing basic NMR data. The students will then learn the how to conduct a simple biomolecular NMR experiments and then process and document the resulting data. They will be expected to utilize their theoretical knowledge to interpret the data in a biological context.
