CECAM Workshop on Virus Crystallography

Orsay, France

4 July - 26 August 1977

Under the auspices of CECAM (Centre EuropĂ©en de Calcul Atomique et MolĂ©culaire), a five-week workshop took place in Orsay to develop software for phasing using non-crystallographic symmetry. This followed the recent development by Gerard Bricogne of such phasing methods, and their successful application to the structure of the tobacco mosaic virus.

Participants
Steve Harrison, Gerard Bricogne. Steve, Gerard and Art Olson travelled to Paris for the CECAM workshop from Cambridge England. The group in Cambridge had prepared some of the input for the phasing computations to be done on the IBM 370 at CIRCE at the CECAM workshop. This photo shows Steve and Gerard after disembarking from the ferry at Calais, to catch the bus to Paris. The cart was mostly filled with boxes of punch cards for the computations.
