The Bijvoet tutorial symposia are devoted to various aspects of the structure, function and interaction of biomolecules. The two-day meeting is intended for everybody interested in structural biology. All Ph.D. students, postdoctoral fellows and staff members working at the Bijvoet Graduate School are expected to actively participate in this event, and stay overnight. It creates unique possibilities to become fully aware of the multi-disciplinary approach that is necessary to solve problems related to the functioning of biomolecules.
A focal point of the research activities of the Bijvoet Graduate School for Biomolecular Chemistry is the study of molecular structure, dynamics, recognition and interaction. Modern molecular biological methods, enzymic and/or chemical synthesis, and separation techniques are applied to obtain molecules and molecular complexes. These molecules are chosen with a view towards their function in biological processes. To study the compounds and their complexes with complementary molecules, sophisticated instrumental and biological techniques are used. Advanced nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, X-ray diffraction, interaction analysis, isotope labelling, and computational techniques are applied to gain insight into the fundamental aspects of molecular recognition.
