Learning outcomes

After completing Stuctural Bioinformatics, the student has a solid background in structure-related bioinformatics. The theoretical background enables starting actual protein modeling. The student can describe limits of usability of protein models, both in the case of experiment-based and theoretical models, and can use various tools to evaluate the quality of such models. He/she can use molecular graphics software to prepare publication-quality images.
