Spectroscopy of Biological Molecules, 7.5 credits

About the education

This course teaches theory and application of the spectroscopic methods that are used in the life sciences. Examples are spectroscopy in the ultraviolett and visible spectral range, infrared and Raman spectroscopy, fluorescence, circular dichroism and electron paramagentic resonance. It also discusses several important life processes and illustrates how spectroscopic methods are applied to understand these processes. Laboratory course work provides hands-on experience with some of the most common spectroscopic methods. No high-resolution methods are discussed in order to avoid overlap with the Structural biochemistry course.

Time: The course is given May-June (period D).

Area of interest: Science and Mathematics

Science and mathematics help us understand how the world around us is connected – from the origin and structure of the universe, to the development and function of humanity and all other organisms on earth.

Scientific knowledge makes it possible to critically examine the credibility of information in different areas of everyday life, society, and the media.

As a scientist or mathematician, you will be attractive on a large job market that covers all parts of society and includes everything from pure technology companies to environment and healthcare, as well as research.
