NMR Spectroscopy Course

This course (Biochem 675) covers NMR theory, methods and practice related to characterization of proteins, with subjects including 1D NMR, 2D COSY, TOCSY and NOESY experiments, ligand detection by methods including chemical shift perturbations, saturation transfer difference and filtered NOE's, and double and triple resonance methods for resonance assignment and structure determination. Offered from January to April 2019 by Brian Sykes, Peter Hwang and Michael Overduin.

Recommended reading includes:

Dieter Ziessow's Understanding Multiple-Pulse Experiments
David Wemmer's Homonuclear Correlated Spectroscopy
