Event Name

BioSAXS Essentials 6: Getting Started in Biological Small-Angle X-ray Solution Scattering

Start Date 13th May 2016
End Date 15th May 2016
Description MacCHESS is offering its sixth intensive HOWTO course in BioSAXS. Students will have a day and a half of lectures and hands-on software tutorials on the basics of BioSAXS data collection and processing from expert practitioners in the field. This will be followed by real data collection on MacCHESS beamlines (F1 and G1 stations).

While the primary purpose of the course is educational, students may bring a limited number of their own research samples. Prepared standard protein samples will be available to all students for practice.

This course now accepts remote students. These students will receive digital copies of all lectures, tutorials, and sample data, and will have access to a live stream of the course lectures. Remote students will not have data collection time during the course. This option is intended for current MacCHESS BioSAXS users who want a refresher, or for new users who have scheduled beamtime this May but cannot come to CHESS twice.

Course topics:
  •  Basic principles and processing methods
  •  Critical sample preparation and data collection procedures
  •  Evaluating data quality
  •  Computing envelopes and data modeling
  •  Online size-exclusion chromatography (SEC-SAXS)
  •  Overview of advanced and emerging methods
  •  What you need to know for publication
