Event Name

In Situ Serial Crystallography - ISSX2 Workshop

Start Date 27th Nov 2017
End Date 29th Nov 2017
Description The In Situ Serial Crystallography Workshop ISSX2 is dedicated to the
presentation of the `in meso in situ serial crystallography (IMISX)' method
[Huang et al. (2016), Acta Cryst. D72, 93-112] for the X-ray structure determination of membrane proteins.

The workshop consists of introductory lectures, as well as presentations of
serial crystallography activities at both synchrotron and XFEL facilities.
The main part of the workshop focuses on hands-on practicals on methods for
growing crystals of membrane proteins by the in meso or lipidic cubic
phase (LCP) method, for collecting serial diffraction data on
micro-crystals directly in situ and for processing the data most
efficiently for high-resolution structure determination.

There is no registration fee and all local expenses will be covered, but
participants are requested to take care of their travel arrangements. The
workshop is limited to 20 students.
