I need an advice:
I have to choose one free-choice course to listen this semester, and due to a currently poor offer, the only offered course that seems interesting at the moment is protein crystallography course (determination of structure by x-ray diffraction on single crystals).
Now, by default I'm a master student in organic synthesis, and I have quite scarce background in math from my old university, since we did a lot of calculus but almost no linear algebra, matrices and vectors, and the circumstances are such that I don't have a lot of time for learning all of that, and this course does not offer that.
Considering all of that, I'm a doubt now about taking this course. Would it be too risky? What amount and type of math knowledge is needed for protein structure determination from crystals?
