The Protein Folding & Assembly course is followed by undergraduate students in Chemistry and Molecular Life Sciences at Utrecht University. The course is aimed at obtaining a molecular understanding of topics including protein folding, chaperones, and the formation of amyloid fibrils. The students get the opportunity to apply their newly gained expertise in this field by writing a preLight on a relevant preprint.
