  1. X-ray Diffraction studies of Biological Micro- and Macromolecules

  2. Applications of Neutron Diffraction in Studies of BiologicalStructures

  3. Use of Molecular Models- Conformational Analysis of Biomolecules using Energy Calculations and modeling

  4. Principles of Stereochemistry. Applications in biomolecules and and Biological Structures

  5. Principles of Protein Structure

  6. Protein Folding and Structure Prediction
