Event Name

Biostruct-X Workshop on Ensemble Refinement of Protein Crystal Structures

Start Date 31st Jan 2016
End Date 2nd Feb 2016

New methods and tools are emerging to address the limitations of
conventional refinement and one of the most interesting is the
combination of molecular dynamics methods with crystallographic
refinement, in what is termed Ensemble Refinement.

The lectures dealing with the emerging theoretical and practical concepts
will be combined with hands-on tutorial sessions.

The invited speakers include:

·       Paul Adams (Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, Berkeley, CA, USA

·       Alexandre Urzhumtsev (CNRS–INSERM–UdS, Illkirch, France)

·       Raj Pannu (Leiden University, Leiden, The Netherlands)

·       Remy Loris (Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels, Belgium)

·       Marta Amaral (IMI-K4DD and Merck Serono R&D, Darmstadt, Germany)

·       To be confirmed:**Tom Burnley (STFC, Rutherford Appleton
Laboratory, Didcot, UK)

 This workshop is directed to PhD students and young Post-doctoral
researchers who are already experienced in Macromolecular
Crystallography and who wish to learn about this new paradigm of X-ray
protein crystal structure refinement, towards its application in their
own projects. To that effect, participants will be strongly encouraged
to bring their own data to the workshop. The number of places is
limited, therefore apply early!

 The registration fee is 100 € and will include accommodation,
transportation between the hotel and ITQB, workshop materials,
coffee/tea breaks, all workshop lunches and one dinner. The application
deadline is December 18, 2015.
