Course on Protein Quality Control

Organizer

Prof. André Matagne, Laboratory of Enzymology and Protein Folding, Centre for Protein Engineering, University of Liège, Belgium, on behalf of the F.R.S.-FNRS Graduate School “Structure and Function of Biological Macromolecules, Bioinformatics and Modelling” and the Belgian Biophysical Society.

Objectives

To familiarize participants with these guidelines for protein quality control and to provide an overview of the technologies essential for enhancing the accuracy and reproducibility of data obtained with purified proteins.

Course designed for scientists currently using or intending to use purified proteins in their laboratory experiments.
By the end of the course, participants should be familiar with a variety of techniques applicable to purified proteins, ultimately enhancing the reliability and reproducibility of data in downstream applications involving these proteins.

4-day course comprising lectures on protein expression and purification techniques, and methods for assessing the quality of purified protein samples. Additionally, participants will have hands-on practical sessions demonstrating how to apply these experiments for protein quality control.
