NYSBC offers three semester long, fully accredited, graduate level courses available to students from NYSBC's 10 member institutions:
NMR Spectroscopy of Macromolecules A detailed survey of the principles of modern techniques in NMR spectroscopy as applied to biological macromolecules. Offered Spring Semester in even-numbered years through Columbia University.
Cryoelectron Microscopy of Macromolecular Assemblies Covers the theory and practice of solving structures by CEM. NYSBC also conducts non-credit, one-day Cryoelectron Microscopy workshops with presentations and practical demonstrations. Offered each Fall through New York University.
Biomolecular NMR Spectroscopy Training in protein structure determination by NMR. Offered Spring Semester in odd-numbered years through CUNY.
Special Training Courses
In addition, NYSBC offers periodic Short Training Courses to help users become more familiar with NMR and spectrometer operation. Solution State Protein NMR and Solid State Protein NMR are offered to affiliates who:
* Have only a limited exposure to multidimensional NMR, but are familiar with simple NMR.
* Will begin operating the spectrometers locally at NYSBC within 3 months of the course.
* Are familiar with non-Bruker spectrometers, but need specific training for effective use of Bruker systems.
NYSBC hosts a biweekly seminar series, “Metagroup”, with presentations by scientists from Member Institutions, NYSBC staff, and visiting researchers. See the current semester schedule.
“Challenges In Biology” is a series of mini-symposia designed to examine the importance of structural biology in ongoing research by presenting distinguished lecturers. See a list of past and upcoming events.
Outreach NYSBC also hosts school visits from elementary, middle, and high school students.
