Functional Target Discovery by Quantitative Chemical Proteomics

Seminar: Special Seminar | August 14 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 9 Lewis Hall

 Professor Chu Wang, College of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering, Peking University, China

 College of Chemistry

Genome sequencing projects have revolutionized our view of the complexity of prokaryotic and eukaryotic proteomes, however, we are also left with a daunting challenge of functionally annotating these large number of predicted proteins. Chemical proteomic methods, such as activity-based protein profiling (ABPP), have been developed aiming at systematically discovering new functional targets...   More >

Science Lecture - Controlling electron beams with lasers: Revealing protein structure

Lecture | August 18 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 131 Campbell Hall

 Osip Schwartz, Department of Physics


On a microscopic level, every function of life is performed by biological macromolecules. To understand how these molecular machines work, it is necessary to know the three-dimensional structure of their constituent protein complexes. Recently, a breakthrough in protein structure studies has been brought about by a series of technological advances in transmission electron microscopes, imaging...   More >
