Event Name

NJUST/CCP4 school: From data processing to structure refinement and beyond

Start Date 13th Sep 2015
End Date 20th Sep 2015

The first CCP4 Chinese crystallographic school will take place at the Nanjing University of Science and Technology (NJUST). It will focus on macromolecular structure solution, refinement and validation from X-ray diffraction image data.

The school will cover many modern crystallographic software packages including CCP4, XDS and SHELX, taught by authors and other experts. It will be organized in three sections – lectures, tutorials and hands-on trouble-shooting.

Applicants: Graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young scientists at the assistant professor level are encouraged to apply. Only 20 applicants will be selected for participation. Participants of the workshop are strongly encouraged to bring their own problem data sets or crystals so the problems can be addressed during the school.

Application information: The application deadline is Friday August 7th. The application form, the program, contact info and other details can be found at


Fees: There is no fee for the workshop. The students will be responsible for their transportation and lodging. The workshop organizers can help make the reservations for hotel accommodation close to NJUST. The likely total cost for lodging and meals will be in the region of 2500 RMBs.

Data Processing and Structure Solution Workshop

The aim of this workshop will be to cover all aspects of the structure solution process in macromolecular crystallography, starting from data processing, through phasing and refinement, and ending with validation and deposition.

The workshop will cover many popular programs used for data processing and structure solution with the software developers available to help throughout the week. Programs covered will include: Mosflm, Scala, DIALS, XDS, Refmac, ArpWarp, Phaser, Coot, SHELXC/D/E, BALBES, MrBUMP, Buccaneer and many more.
