Event Name

APS Data collection workshop and CCP4 school: From data collection to structure refinement and beyond

Start Date 16th Jun 2015
End Date 23rd Jun 2015

8th annual CCP4 USA Crystallography School

The first two days will be dedicated to data collection and processing. The rest of the school will focus on structure solution, refinement and validation.

The course is intended mainly for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young scientists in the area of structural biology from all across the globe. The school is not meant as an introductory level course to protein crystallography. It is designed more for applicants with reasonable expertise in crystallography and experience with the CCP4 suite. The purpose of the school is to address specific problems that the applicants face while collecting diffraction data and while solving and refining novel structures. Applicants with crystals for data collection or with already collected data will be given strong consideration, although these are not mandatory requirements.

Several of the leading PX software developers from around the world will present lectures and tutorials on their software and will also be available to help with problems during hands-on sessions of the school.
