The Diamond Light Source Macromolecular Crystallography group would like to invite both our academic and industrial users to MX beamline training sessions on the 24th -25th February 2016.

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 as well as optional offline software sessions.

Sessions include:

24th February afternoon optional session Hands on software

  • MX pipelines and XIA2 at Diamond
  • Tutorial sessions:
    • CCP4i2: scaling with Aimless, phasing and refinement (CCP4 team)
    • Data processing with DIALS 
25th February session on MX beamlines:
  • Mini-Kappa goniometry / Anomalous data collection
  • Sample humidity control (HC1)
  • I24 new end station/ In-situ diffraction
  • Fragment screening in crystals – I04-1/Lab36

Registration is free-of-charge with lunch provided on the 24th and 25th February, and accommodation and dinner for the night of the 24th February. Travelling expenses within the UK will also be provided. The training is targeted at all users, and is not limited to students and post docs.
