The workshop has been designed for postgraduate, postdoctoral and research scientists that deal with macromolecular crystallography but need further knowledge on the routine uses and fundamentals that underlie the modern techniques for macromolecular crystallography. The topics will cover crystallographic computing and fundamentals using XDS, CCP4 and Phenix, as well as the state of the art on topics such as the strategies for protein production, phasing with ARCCIMBOLDO, SHELX and SIR2014, modeling with COOT and low resolution techniques. MCS2015 will provide five days and a half of lectures and workshops. The course is designed for 25 highly motivated students.

Requests to participate must be sent by a free-formated E-mail, before March 21, 2015 to the following address: cursos@fgua.es, indicating the motivation to participate and including a letter of recommendation from PhD Director (only for PhD students).
Accepted participants will be notified by e-mail before April 4, 2015.
