Event Name

IFSC/CCP4 Molecular Crystallography School. “From data processing to structure refinement and beyond”

Start Date 14th Nov 2018
End Date 24th Nov 2018

The school comprises theoretical and in-depth tutorial training on state-of-the-art methods in macromolecular crystallography.

 Main Topics

  • Diffraction data processing;
  • Phasing and structure determination;
  • Model refinement and validation;
  • Crystallographic computation workshop: will feature many modern crystallographic software packages taught by the authors and other experts.

The daily schedule will be organized into three sessions – lectures, tutorials, and hands-on activities, with interactive troubleshooting of the technical difficulties the participants face in their projects.

Applicants: Graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young
scientists at the assistant professor level, are encouraged to apply. Only
25 applicants will be selected for participation. Participants of the
workshop are strongly encouraged to bring their own problem datasets so the
problems can be addressed during the hands-on/discussion sessions.

Application: Application deadline is September 30th.

The registration for application is free. Few scholarships to cover travel
expenses for students from Brazil and Latin America will be available.
Accommodation expenses will be covered to all participants. More
instructions will be provided once the selection process is completed.
