Gsponer Lab Tour & Social Event
Posted by joanna on February 15, 2013
Date: Monday, Feb. 18
Time: 11AM
Location: Michael Smith Labs

Dr. Joerg Gsponer studies Protein-DNA, protein-RNA, and protein-protein interactions. With the help of high-throughput methods, it is possible to discern the topology of large cellular interaction networks, which are represented as “interactome” maps. The Gsponer lab has not only to mapped these interactomes but also, and perhaps more importantly, elucidated how the structure and interaction properties of the constituent proteins affect network and phenotypic traits. This lab tour will give an overview of NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, and other biophysical methods in the determination of protein structures.

After the lab tour, we will be going for food (more details to follow).

To guarantee your spot at this event, please email ubcbiophys@gmail.com with your:
1. Name
2. Student number
3. Contact phone number for the day

The UBC Biophysics Student Society offers support for both the academic and social aspects of our students.

The field of Biophysics contains many different areas ranging from molecules to proteins to organisms. With such diverse range of topics, the laws of physics that apply to each topic is equally varied. Therefore, Biophysics brings together many different topics of physics to bear into the investigation of biological matter.
