Deputy Programme Co-ordinator, Associate Professor David McIntosch, from Chemical Pathology, will co-ordinate the programme at UCT's Institute of Infectious Disease and Molecular Medicine (IIDMM). He will also present a workshop on the special problems associated with the structure determination of membrane proteins as well as a series of lectures in which major achievements of structural biology are reviewed in context.
There will be two assignments:
The project could involve expression of an ion pump from Mycobacterium tuberculosum, or a soluble portion thereof, in preparation for crystalization or NMR structure determination.
