Wintersemester 2018/19

Vorlesung: Bioorganische Chemie

Das Passwort für die Folien wird in der Vorlesung bekanntgegeben.

Frontiers in Chemical Biology  ::  Seminar / Journal-Club

The seminar is intended for students wishing to broaden their understanding of research in the field of chemical biology / biological chemistry. Selected publications covering major aspects in the field such as activity-based protein profiling, natural products, DNA damage, unnatural amino acids, phosphoproteomics, ligand-protein interactions, post-translational modifications and the like will be presented and actively discussed by the students. This journal club aims at enabling the participants to read, understand and critically evaluate scientific publications. The syllabus will complement the course "bioorganic chemistry" given by Prof. Dr. Sieber and will feature examples of the concepts presented therein. The seminar will partly be given in English. Successful participants will be awarded 2 ECTS (1 SWS).

Prerequisites: An advanced knowledge of organic chemistry and biochemistry, equivalent to at least 2 years of study, is essential. Attendance of the lecture course ‘bioorganic chemistry’ is recommended.

Grading: Grades will be determined by an oral exam in German or in English which will be scheduled by arrangement or at the end of the teaching period.

Date and Room: Wednesdays (starting October 25th), 12:00 - 13:00, CH 53 306

Teaching staff:

Prof. Dr. Stephan A. Sieber

Dr. Stephan M. Hacker

Dr. Pavel Kielkowski

Carolin Gleißner, M.Sc.

Matthias Stahl, M.Sc. 

Literature: Relevant publications will be specified in the first meeting. For a basic understanding of biological chemistry, the following book is recommended: Herbert Waldmann and Petra Janning (Editors): Chemical Biology: Learning through Case Studies, Wiley-VCH, 2009, ISBN: 978-3-527-32330-2, 39.90 Euro.

Registration: Students who are interested are kindly asked to register by e-mail to stephan.m.hacker@tum.de.
