SFB 1078 - Workshop on IR Spectroscopy of Peptides and Proteins

Oct 19, 2016
10:00 AM - 04:00 PM


The SFB 1078 kindly invites you to the Workshop on IR Spectroscopy of Peptides and Proteins [link to complete program].

The workshop will address topics related to the qualitative and quantitative analysis of IR spectroscopy of peptides and proteins. Special focus will be laid on protein secondary structure changes.

The idea is to have sufficient time for discussion, such that the lectures that will be presented should be kept as short as possible. Instead, all participants (not only those listed below) are encouraged to contribute to discussion, also by presenting one or two slides, if appropriate.

Introduction  –  10:00
Peptides  –  Contributions

Prof. Timothy A. Keiderling (University of Illinois, Chicago, USA)
Calculation of amide modes

Dr. Jacek Kozuch/ Prof. Maria Andrea Mroginski (TU Berlin)
Peptide-membrane interactions – a theoretical approach

Side chain modes

Proteins  –  Contributions

Prof. Karin Hauser (University of Konstanz, Germany)
Protein dynamics and amide band changes

Dr. FrancicscoVelazquez Escobar (TU Berlin)
Secondary structure changes in phytochromes

Prof. Maria Andrea Mroginski / Dr. TillmannUtesch (TU Berlin)

Jan Daldrop (FU Berlin)
Theoretical approach towards the IR continuous bands of hydrogen-bonded water

Everybody is welcome!
