Event Details

The Diamond Light Source Macromolecular Crystallography group would like to invite both our academic and industrial users to MX beamline training sessions on the 14th -15th October 2015.

The aim is to provide MX users with sufficient training to be able to operate any of the Diamond MX beamlines efficiently and to get the most benefit from their beamtime. The training will involve hands-on sessions on the suite of five operational MX beamlines (http://www.diamond.ac.uk/mx-home/) as well as optional offline software sessions.

14th October afternoon optional session Hands on software:

Three tutorial sessions:

• CCP4: structure solution and model building with CCP4

15th October, morning and afternoon sessions on MX beamlines:

• MX software: automation in data analysis
