Introduction to DEER Spectroscopy Workshop - 7/31/2017

Join us for the Introduction to DEER Spectroscopy Workshop on Monday, July 31, from 9:30am-5:00pm in 419-D Light Hall.

Double Electron-Electron Resonance (DEER) is a pulsed EPR technique capable of routinely measuring 20 to 60 Å distance distributions between spin labels, and distances over 100 Å have been measured. DEER is widely applicable in the studies of the structure and functional dynamics of proteins, other biomolecules and their complexes.

Topics include:
1. What is the DEER experiment?
2. What can I learn from doing DEER?
3. What is needed to do DEER?
4. Collecting optimal DEER data.
5. Analyzing DEER data.
6. Using DEER results to model structure/dynamics.

Instructors are Eric Hustedt and Richard Stein. If you have questions or plan to attend, please email Eric Hustedt.
