Separation and analysis of proteins is a subject that grows both within research and industry. The subject requires a broad knowledge base, not only in protein chemistry but also in related areas such as gene technology, chromatography, immunology and spectroscopy. The course includes the theoretical basis to apply and interpret modern methods for protein separation and aims to give such comprehensive knowledge in practical protein chemistry that the student will be able to analyse protein structure and function. The practical part of the course, which is the major part, gives besides practical training in experimental work with proteins, also practice in independent planning, designing and executing the work as well as in evaluating and presenting obtained results both orally and in writing.
