Event Name

Crystallization: Focus on Micro and Nano Crystals and High Throughput Methods

Start Date 19th Apr 2016
End Date 22nd Apr 2016

The 2016 SLAC Crystallization Course

Purpose: The purpose of this course is to provide participants with hands-on experience of a variety of crystal growth methods for obtaining high quality crystals for synchrotron and XFELs sources. The course will address both conventional and non-conventional methods in protein crystal growth. Optimization methods will include application of oils, novel nucleating agents, detergents, crystallization in lipid cubic phase, the use of injectors, acoustic droplet ejection and more. Introductory lectures will precede the hands-on tutorials planned for the course. Time for discussions and informal meetings with the tutors is scheduled.

All students are encouraged to bring their own specimens.

The deadline for applications is January 7th. 2016.
