Data Collection and Structure Solving: A Practical Course in Macromolecular X-ray Diffraction Measurement


The aim of the RapiData course is to educate and train young scientists in data collection and processing methods at synchrotron beamlines, using state-of-the-art software and instrumentation

The course will comprise hands-on experiments at the SSRL beamlines, software tutorials, and lectures on the following topics:

  • Specimen preparation, tactics in data collection
  • X-ray light sources
  • X-ray detectors
  • Data reduction
  • Structure solving by MAD, SAD and Molecular replacement
  • Complementary methods (spectroscopy and small angle scattering)
