The Diamond Light Source Macromolecular Crystallography group would like to invite both our academic and industrial users to MX beamline training sessions on the 20th-21st July 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:

20th July 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 
21st July session on MX beamlines:
  • Mini-Kappa goniometry / Anomalous data collection
  • Introduction to VMXi
  • I24 new end station/ In-situ diffraction
  • Fragment screening in crystals – I04-1/Lab36

Experiment database:  ISPyB

Registration is free-of-charge with lunch provided on the 20th and 21st July, and accommodation and dinner for the night of the 20th July. 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. It is essential that each BAG sends at least one representative per calendar year.
