Welcome to the Section for Biomolecular Sciences!
The section consists of four research units covering a wide range of fundamental protein biomolecular topics primarily investigated in a cellular context. You can read more about the research and the divisions here. The members of the section disseminate their knowledge through collaborations with industry, publications and contributions to a variety of courses ranging from basic biochemistry over medical bacteriology to advanced protein science and biological dynamics. Read more about the courses here.
Teaching at BMS
The section has its main teaching competencies and obligations within biochemistry and protein chemistry to students of Biology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biomedicine at all levels. In addition, the section teaches aspects of molecular biology, microbiology and gene technology as well as molecular cell biology.
The Linderstrøm-Lang Centre
The Linderstrøm-Lang Centre for Protein Science focus on the new horizons of protein science and hosts the Linderstrøm-Lang Symposium biannualy.
Research at BMS
The areas of interest reach from protein synthesis and turnover over protein dynamics and design to enzymology and metabolic networks. The section is firmly based in the molecular biology and biophysics. The section enjoys strong ties and close collaborations with other departments at the Faculty of Science at the University of Copenhagen.
ACS Editors Choice
A recent publication from the Linderstrøm-Lang Centre hosted at the Section for Biomolecular Sciences has been selected as Editors Choice by the American Chemical Society. The paper describes the design and production of a soluble protein without any charged amino acid residues.
