[SA_scat] EMBO Global Exchange Lecture Course in 2014- São Paulo, Brazil

Dear all,
on behalf of Dr. Dmitri Svergun, I would like to draw your attention to 
the following EMBO Global funded course
that we will host together with Prof. Cristiano Luis Pinto de Oliveria 
in **São Paulo** in January 2014.


*Structural and biophysical methods for biological macromolecules in solution
EMBO Global Exchange Lecture Course
19 -- 26 January 2014,  São Paulo, Brazil*


The main objective of the Course is to teach the young PhD students and postdocs from
all areas of biology the methods applicable to study biological macromolecules in
solution. We aim at a comprehensive coverage of the field including the major
structural and biophysical techniques employed for the characterization of high
and low resolution structure and structural transitions, macromolecular complex
formation, protein folding and stability, protein-protein and protein-ligand
interactions and enzymatic mechanisms. The Course will include lectures on small-angle
X-ray and neutron scattering (SAXS/SANS), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), static and
dynamic light scattering (SLS/DLS), analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC), differential
and isothermal calorimetry (DSC/ITC) and spectroscopic approaches.
Bioinformatic tools to analyze protein-protein interactions
will be considered, and the joint use of the solution characterization methods with the major
non-solution structural techniques including macromolecular crystallography (MX) and
electron microscopy (EM) will be covered. Special attention will be paid to interdisciplinary
approaches, where the synergistic use of complementary techniques leads to a
comprehensive description of macromolecular systems.

*The course will be held at the Adma Jafet Auditorium at Institute of Physics of the
University of Sao Paulo (IFUSP), Brazil.*

A maximum of*50 participants*  will be selected to attend the course.
A registration fee of 50 Euro will be requested from the academic participants
covering the event materials, lodging and local meals.
Applicants from industry are expected to pay a 1000 Euro fee.

The Course is oriented towards applicants active in Structural Biology,
mostly late Ph.D. students and early post-docs but more senior scientists,
depending on circumstances, could also participate.
Students working in Brazil or Brazilian students working abroad will be
given preference but all applications are welcome.

*Application deadline for the Course: October, 15th, 2013*
