Comments about Structural Biology (MRes) - At the institution - London - Greater London

  • Objectives
    If you want to pursue research training in the interdisciplinary field of structural biology, this degree is ideal. Most of the degree is devoted to a practical project using techniques such as X-ray crystallography, electron cryo-microscopy and image processing, molecular biology, bioinformatics and molecular modelling. Training is also provided in searching and evaluating data in literature and online databases, and in the analytical and presentational skills required by the successful research scientist.
  • Entry requirements
    Entry requirements Biological, chemical or physical sciences degree, second class or better.
