The aim of the Biophysics curse is to introduce the students to the methods and applications, which are routinely used in both the medical and pharmaceutical biotechnology. The principles of the state-of the art approaches and instrumentations are covered by the topics. The course presents diverse spectroscopic techniques (absorption, fluorescence, infrared, Raman, EPR, NMR) imaging approaches (light and fluorescence microscopy, EM, super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, MRI), radioactive applications and calorimetric and fast kinetics techniques. The lectures discuss in details the physical basis and principles of each approach and the field of applications. The practicals are dedicated to extend the students’ knowledge and routine in the use of the different techniques. The practicals lay special emphasis on presenting not only the routine applications, but advanced uses of each technique. The limitations, as well as the artefacts that can be caused by improper experimental planning are highlighted.
