Welcome to the Homepage of the Chair of Biopolymers!
The Chair of Biopolymers is engaged in many areas of research in molecular structural biology relevant to human disease and to the understanding of the basics of biological processes.
In our lab we use molecular biology as well as biochemical and biophysical techniques to characterize proteins and their interaction partners in molecular detail. We apply a variety of methods, including targeted mutagenesis, protein production and purification (Escherichia coli and insect cells), in vitro transcription and translation, nanodiscs, qPCR, analytical gel filtration, circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy, and HPLC/FPLC. To explore the molecular structure of proteins, their complexes and interactions we utilize solution-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).
