The Diamond Light Source Macromolecular Crystallography group would like to invite both our academic and industrial users to MX beamline training sessions on the 13th & 14th December 2017.

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:

Welcome and Registration (including lunch) on 13th December  - 12:00 - 13:00

There will be two tutorial sessions:

  • CCP4: structure solution and model building with CCP4
  • DIALS and more
 14th December: MX beamlines and data room sessions; 
  • MX software: automation in data analysis
  • Multi axis goniometry/ SAD data collection
  • Introductions to the dedicated in situ beamline VMX-i
  • Micro-beam and in-situ diffraction
  • Fragment screening
  • Experiment database: ISPyB
