[SA_Scat] EMBO Practical Course on Solution Scattering fromBiological Macromolecules

Solution Scattering from Biological Macromolecules
EMBO Practical Course, 17-24 October 2016, Hamburg, GermanyOrganizers: Dmitri Svergun and Al Kikhneyhttp://events.embo.org/16-sas/
The course is aimed at young scientists working in the field of structural biology including biochemists, biophysicists, and those specializing in macromolecular crystallography (MX), electron microscopy (EM), NMR or bioinformatics. Small angle scattering (SAS) of X-rays and neutrons (SAXS/SANS) allows one to study native particles and complexes and to monitor structural changes in response to variations in external conditions (temperature, pH, salinity, ligands). The method provides low resolution macromolecular shapes ab initio and is readily combined with other structural, biochemical and computational techniques in hybrid approaches.
The course participants will have the possibility to learn the basics of SAS, sample preparation, experiment design, data interpretation and will get hands-on experience with the latest modelling programs. The participants are encouraged to bring their own samples to perform synchrotron solution scattering experiments on-site, the results will be used for practical tutorials and discussed on the last day of the course.
26 participants will be selected to attend the course. The registration fee of 50 euro will be requested from the accepted academic participants covering the event materials, lodging and meals. Applicants from industry are expected to pay a 1000 euro fee.
Application deadline: July 31st 2016.Apply now: http://events.embo.org/16-sas/#Register_______________________________________________sa_scat mailing listsa_scat@iucr.orghttp://mailman.iucr.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/sa_scat
