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
October 2008

D. Svergun,  M. Roessle, M. Petoukhov, P. Konarev (European Molecular
Biology Laboratory, Hamburg Outstation)

The course aims at young biochemists/biophysicists and researchers active in
related structural methods (protein crystallography, NMR, electron
with little or no experience in solution scattering. The course will cover
basics of SAXS/SANS, instrumentation, data collection, modelling techniques
and complementary use with other methods. The students will be encouraged to
bring their own samples to perform synchrotron solution scattering
on-site and the results will be used for practical tutorials and discussed
the last day of the course.

There is no registration fee and accommodation and subsistence will be
covered for
accepted applicants. Scientists from industry will be required to pay a fee
Euro 1000.

Limited travel support could be provided to young scientists working in
