Event Overview

We are very pleased to announce the 5th joint CCP4 & Diamond Data Collection and Structure Solution 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 one day 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.

More details are available at the CCP4 website

Delegate Information

The course, held at Diamond Light Source, Oxfordshire, UK, is free to attend and all meals and accommodation at the Guest House at Harwell Campus for the duration of the course is included and funded by generous sponsorship by both CCP4, Diamond Light Source and industry sponsors.

Students will be expected to cover their own travel costs although in exceptional cases, there may be funds available to assist with travel to and from the course.

Applications are now closed.
