First Pasteur Course on Integrative Structural Biology

Start Date 18th Jul 2016
End Date 23rd Jul 2016
Description We are pleased to announce the first Pasteur Course on Integrative
Structural Biology. Problems in structural biology today can very often
not be solved by one technique alone, but need to be solved by a
combination of methods, including NMR, X-ray crystallography, electron
microscopy, structural mass spectrometry, and SAXS. The heterogeneous
data coming from these methods need to be combined with advanced
molecular modeling techniques. The goal of the course is to provide
young scientists that have more specialized knowledge in one of the
techniques an overview over the broad range of modern structural methods
available. Special emphasis will be given to computational approaches to
integrate data (such as IMP, ARIA or HADDOCK).

The course is principally aimed at the mature graduate student /
postdoctoral level, but applications from scientists at all levels are
encouraged. The course will consist of lectures, which will give
introductions into the principles and limitations of the different
techniques, and practical work on data analysis with the major structure
refinement / modeling programs.

The course fee of € 250 (students) covers lodging and most meals.

Program and details on registration procedures will be available before
the end of the week.
A poster abstract, a short CV, and a letter of motivation will be required.
