[SA_scat] EMBO practical course in Hamburg,, October 17-24, 2012

EMBO practical course on Solution Scattering from Biological Macromolecules

The course will take place at EMBL Hamburg, Germany, on October 17-24, 2012.

D. Svergun, M. Roessle, M. Petoukhov, A. Kikhney (European Molecular Biology
Laboratory, Hamburg Outstation)

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, modelling
techniques and complementary use with other methods. 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.

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 1000. Limited travel grants are available to selected
participants coming from labs in countries in need of scientific

The detailed course information and the online application form are
available at http://events.embo.org/12-sas/

Please note that there will be an additional possibility  for a combination
of SAXS with sample optimization and crystallization experiments, supported
by the EU program P-Cube (www.p-cube.eu). The selected participants will be
offered the opportunity to send their samples in advance to the EMBL Hamburg
high-throughput crystallization platform
Depending on the crystallization results, P-Cube may sponsor optimization of
the sample conditions, use of the EMBL Sample Preparation and
Characterization (SPC) facility 
(http://www.embl-hamburg.de/facilities/spc/index.html) and more extensive
SAXS experiments during the Course. Travel support may also be offered for
some of the P-cube sponsored participants. 
Contact E-mail: r.meijers@embl-hamburg.de.

The deadline for applications is July 31st, 2012. The applications will be
considered by a Selection Committee and the results of the selection
procedure will be sent to applicants by email within about four weeks of the
closing date.

If you have any questions about the course, please post them to
