Event Overview

We are very pleased to announce the first joint CCP4 & Diamond Light Source workshop on practical macromolecular crystallography, to take place at Diamond this December.

The workshop will consist of presentations and tutorials delivered by experts in the field, plus two days of data collection time at Diamond's excellent MX beamlines. Students will be able to work alongside experts on their own projects, tackling all aspects of structure solution, from data collection through to phasing, refinement and validation.

The course is intended mainly for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and early career scientists in the area of structural biology. Some experience of crystallography and the use of CCP4 software is expected, and applications from students who can bring an interesting project with them (crystals and possibly previously collected datasets) will be favoured. Students will have access to Diamond's computing facilities for the duration of the course, with access to most major MX software packages.

Delegate Information

The 8-day course, held at Diamond Light Source, Oxfordshire, UK, is free to attend and all meals and accommodation at the onsite guest house Ridgeway House are included and funded by generous sponsorship by both CCP4 and Diamond Light Source. Students will be expected to cover their own travel costs

Registration is now CLOSED.
