Event Name

Integrating X-ray crystallography and scattering with electron microscopy

Start Date 2nd May 2016
End Date 5th May 2016
Description

The course covers a multidisciplinary approach to study the structure of
challenging proteins, focusing on membrane proteins and large complexes.
The basic principles will be provided for each addressed technique
(Macromolecular Crystallography, Mass Spectrometry and Electron
Microscopy); their applications in biological systems, major benefits
and limitations will also be discussed.

The Workshop is organized with lectures in the mornings followed by
hands-on training. The course is aimed primarily at PhD students and
young Post-Doctoral researchers interested in Structural Biology.
Confirmed speakers are Jose Maria Carazo, Dmitri Svergun and Isabel de
Moraes.

 Participants will be limited to 20. Candidate selection will be based on
a short CV, a motivation letter from the applicant, and a recommendation
letter from the supervisor.

Registration deadline is February 23. Please send your application to
combstruct2016@itqb.unl.pt. Registration fee is 180Eur including
accommodation.
