Event Name

ISBC2017. 6th International School on Biological Crystallization

Start Date 29th May 2017
End Date 2nd Jun 2017

ISBC2017 will provide five days of lectures and practical demonstrations related to the crystallization of biological macromolecules, biominerals and biomimetic materials, with one full day devoted to case studies on the crystallization of membrane proteins, viruses and large macromolecular complexes.

ISBC Granada 2017 will focus on the fundamentals of crystallization from solution and its applications for the crystallization of biological materials.

  • Nucleation: Classical and non-classical approaches
  • Crystal growth kinetics and mechanisms
  • Properties of macromolecular solutions (DLS/SAXS)
  • Screening: The search for crystallization conditions
  • Crystallization techniques: Batch, Vapour and Counter Diffusion, How do they work?
  • Crystallization and diffusion transport: gels, microfluidics and microgravity
  • Crystallization of large crystals for Neutron diffraction
  • In vivo crystallization of tiny crystals for XFEL
  • Polymorphism in protein crystals
  • Robotics and crystallization
  • Case studies in Membrane Protein Crystallization
  • Lipid cubic phase, bicelles and detergents
  • Case studies in crystallization of Large Macromolecular Complexes
  • In vitro and in vivo studies of Biomineralization processes
