Thermodynamics & Calorimetry Workshop on Biomolecular Interactions

Nano ITC and nano DSC techniques. The workshop is free of charge and will be held on 5 June 2017.


09:00 - 10:00 Introduction to calorimetric techniques and methods with special emphasis on ITC and DSC
10:00 - 10:15 Coffee break
10:15 - 12:00 Affinities, free energies, enthalpies, entropies, and heat capacity changes: How has thermodynamic information helped us understand the nature of molecular recognition processes? A brief historical review and outlook
12:00 - 12:30 Coffee Break
12:30 - 14:00 The heat capacity - temperature function: Partial and apparent heat capacities for the understanding of phenomena such as stability of molecular assemblies, the hydrophobic effect and more
14:00 -15:30 Lunch
15:30 - 17:00 Practice in the lab – designing experiments, running measurements, and evaluation of results
17:00 - 18:00 Analysis of ITC and DSC data of biomolecular interactions and protein stability
