ICMRBS 2018 Satellite Workshop

Isotopic-labelling Approaches for Biomolecular NMR spectroscopy

This workshop will showcase some of the latest developments in stable isotopic labelling and their application to biomolecular NMR spectroscopy. The two sessions will feature talks from leading scientists in protein and nucleic acid structural biology. Early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their latest results in short talks, which will be selected from submitted abstracts.
