SBiNLab: Structural Biology and NMR Laboratory

The research and teaching programs of the laboratory are focussed on the structural biology of proteins. Structural Biology of proteins is a discipline of science aiming towards understanding the correlations between molecular structure and function of proteins, which are the vital engines of the biological cell factory.

A wide selection of techniques are implemented at the laboratory including NMR spectroscopy, optical spectroscopy, protein engineering, bioinformatics and molecular biology.

Research in SBiNLab

The research within SBiNLab focuses on the structure, folding and dynamics of proteins, employing state-of-the-art NMR and computational methods. Research includes: (i) Intrinsically Disordered Proteins, (ii) The relationship between dynamics and function of proteins incl. enzymes, (iii) methods to integrate NMR and computation, and (iv) applications of (i)-(iii) in the study of biological processes.

For students

We offer a range of different phd projects, often in collaboration with international academic coworkers or industrial domestic partners. As a phd student you are accepted into the phd school at the Faculty of Science and become part of the phd program in Protein Science. We also organize PhD Summer Schools in Protein Science at regular intervals.

JBC Virtual Issue

JBC Virtual IssueA publication from the Linderstrøm-Lang Centre hosted at the Section for Biomolecular Sciences has been included in the JBC virtual issue on structural biology. The paper describes how elusive but widespread disordered short linear motifs can provide a key to mapping the interactome of transcription factors.
