[SA_Scat] EMBO Practical Course on Solution Scattering fromBiological Macromolecules

Solution Scattering from Biological Macromolecules
EMBO Practical Course, 19-26 November 2016, Hamburg, GermanyOrganizers: Dmitri Svergun and Al Kikhneyhttp://meetings.embo.org/event/18-sas
The course is aimed at young scientists working in the field ofstructural biology including biochemists, biophysicists, and thosespecializing in macromolecular crystallography, electron microscopy, NMRor bioinformatics. Small angle scattering of X-rays and neutrons(SAXS/SANS) allows one to study native particles and complexes and tomonitor structural changes in response to variations in externalconditions (temperature, pH, salinity, ligands). The method provides lowresolution macromolecular shapes ab initio and is readily combined withother structural, biochemical and computational techniques in hybridapproaches.
The course participants will have the possibility to learn the basics ofSAXS/SANS, sample preparation, experiment design, data interpretationand will get hands-on experience with the latest modelling programs. Theparticipants are encouraged to bring their own samples to performsynchrotron solution scattering experiments on-site, the results will beused for practical tutorials and discussed on the last day of the course.
26 participants will be selected to attend the course. The registrationfee of 100 euro will be requested from the accepted academicparticipants (50 euro for students/postdocs) covering the eventmaterials, lodging and meals. Applicants from industry are expected topay a 1000 euro fee.
