Structural Biology and Biophysics Seminar (SBBS)

The Structural Biology and Biophysics Seminar (SBBS) series is organized by PhD students of the Biozentrum, University of Basel since 2009. World leading scientists are invited to present their current work to an audience of students, researchers and PIs. Typical lectures in this series describe applications of advanced structural biology and biophysics methods to solve biological problems. Methods include NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, cryo-electron microscopy, surface plasmon resonance and atomic force microscopy, but not only. The list of the past SBBS speakers is accessible here.

The talks take place on Tuesday, 12:15 PM, in room BZ 411. Attendance is open to all interested people, without registration.

Important information for students:
