[SA_scat] EMBO Course on Scattering from Biological Macromolecules,Hamburg, Oct 2004

Dear All,

this is an announcement of the EMBO Practical Course on Solution Scattering
from Biological Macromolecules. The message is sent to several listservers,
and I apologize if some of you will receive it more than once. 

With best regards   D.Svergun


EMBO practical course on Solution Scattering from Biological Macromolecules 

The course will take place at the EMBL, Hamburg Outstation, Germany, on 29
October - 5 November 2004.

.	R.Willumeit, GKSS Research Center, Geesthacht 
The course aims at young biochemists/biophysicists and researchers active in
related structural methods (protein crystallography, NMR, electron
microscopy) with little or no experience in solution scattering. The course
will cover basics of SAXS/SANS, instrumentation, data collection and
modelling techniques. The students will be encouraged to bring their own
samples to perform synchrotron solution scattering experiments on-site and
the results will be used for practical tutorials and discussed on the last
day of the course. The course is supported by the Structural Proteomics in
Europe consortium (SPINE).

There is no registration fee and accommodation and subsistence are covered
for accepted applicants. Scientists from industry will be required to pay a
fee of Euro 1500 direct to EMBO. A limited number of bursaries will be
available towards covering travel costs and will be awarded competitively.

The course materials, preliminary list of speakers and on-line application
forms to attend the course are available from

The deadline for applications is 1st August 2004. The applications will be
considered by a Selection Committee and the result of the selection
