Our research group is taking the advantage of living on the border between biology and physics. We are mostly focused on single-molecule research and we are currently looking for motivated students of all degrees!
Macromolecular X-ray Crystallography is a technique used to study biological molecules such as proteins, viruses and nucleic acids (RNA and DNA) to an atomic resolution. This high resolution helps elucidate the detailed structure-based mechanism by which these macromolecules carry out their functions in living cells and organisms.
Analysis and photochemical degradation of pesticides in freshwater systems, photochemical oxidation of biopolymers, analytical chemistry in environmental sciences.
Our laboratory focuses on the application of biochemical methods in various scientific fields. We apply biochemical, molecular biological, transcriptomic, genomic, proteomic techniques for the study glycobiology of ticks and tick-borne pathogens, tick-host-pathogen interactions, nanostructured surface functionalization, and the study of fish development.
Laboratory of Proteomics provides basic as well as more complex proteomic analyses of various samples. Currently, four mass spectrometers are available.
Centre of excellence “Mechanisms and dynamics of macromolecular complexes” (MAKROKOMPLEX) is an interdisciplinary research consortium based at the Faculty of Science, University of South Bohemia in Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic.
