Summary

Our Postgraduate Certificate in Protein Crystallography is an excellent introduction to protein crystallography. It is designed for those who are interested in pursuing a career in this exciting and rapidly expanding field, especially in the pharmaceutical industry, or for those who would like to expand and update their existing scientific knowledge.

Up-to-date descriptions of the background, methods and techniques of protein crystallography are explained, and the course gives the biologically orientated scientist a mainly non-mathematical insight into how protein crystal structures are determined and how results should be judged.

You will learn:

  • the fundamentals of protein structure

  • X-ray diffraction and symmetry

  • how to determine structures using protein crystallography

  • how to judge the quality of co-ordinates.

Highlights

  • An innovative course taught entirely using the internet. You study part time in your own time, wherever you are in the world. Many of our students have full-time jobs or extensive family responsibilities.

  • May be taken as a stand-alone certificate course or as part of our acclaimed internet-based MSc Structural Molecular Biology.

  • Taught within the Department of Biological Sciences which, with University College London, is part of the leading research-based Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology. Several of the department’s world-class researchers contribute to the course.

  • In the 2021 Research Excellence Framework (REF), in a joint submission with UCL, Biological Sciences at Birkbeck were ranked 11th in the UK, with a research environment supporting world-leading and internationally excellent research.
