Mass spectrometry is one of the main analytical-chemical techniques used to characterise organic compounds and their elemental composition. This overview will discuss some of the most frequently used mass spectrometry techniques and their specific strengths (e.g., quadrupole, time-of-flight and high-resolution MS), as well as ionisation techniques such as electron ionisation (EI), electrospray ionisation (ESI), matrix assisted laser desorption/ionisation (MALDI) and MS techniques to quantify metal concentrations (e.g. inductively coupled plasma MS, ICP-MS) and isotope ratios.

CT3 Mass Spectrometry in Structural Biology and Biophysics (1 of 2) Finished 13:00 - 14:00 Department of Chemistry, Unilever Lecture Theatre

During the last decade, mass spectrometry (MS) has become an indispensable tool in experimental biophysics, capable of providing unique information on the conformation and dynamics of biomolecules, as well as their interactions with physiological partners. In this short course, the current state of biophysical MS will be presented, with emphasis on experimental techniques that are used to study protein higher order structure and dynamics. Biophysical methods that use MS are native MS, tandem MS (MS/MS), liquid chromatography MS (LC-MS), hydrogen-deuterium exchange MS (HDX-MS), chemical cross-linking MS (CXL-MS) and ion mobility MS (IM-MS).

Tuesday 17 October

10:00

A ‘recommended’ optional course that introduces all the relevant online databases available to you in the university: citation databases such as Web of Science, Scopus, and PubMed, which index all the scientific literature that is published, as well as chemistry and related subject-specific databases. You will be guided on how to search citation databases effectively and the session includes a hands-on element where you can practise searching using the PCs available. You are welcome to bring your own laptop.

The session will be most suitable for those who are new to searching citation databases or would like a refresher.

Please note that this session will not cover searching the databases Reaxys and SciFinder. These are covered by IS5.

CT4 Solution Phase NMR Spectroscopy (1 of 3) In progress 13:00 - 14:00 Department of Chemistry, Unilever Lecture Theatre

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy represents one of the most informative and widely used techniques for characterisation of compounds in the solution and solid state. Most researchers barely tap into the potential of the experiments that are available on the instruments in the Department, so in this short course we will explore the basic concepts that will allow you to make the most of these powerful techniques for routine analysis, as well as introducing more specialised experiments.

IS6 An introduction to GitHub new [Places] 15:00 - 16:00 Unilever Lecture Theatre

Are you interested in using Git https://git-scm.com/ and GitHub https://github.com/ to manage your code/research data? This new workshop covers the following:

• What is Git? What is GitHub? What is version control?

• How can it be useful for you?

• Practical session: working with GitHub

Refreshments will be provided.
