We are very pleased to announce the 9th jointly organised Diamond-CCP4 Data Collection and Structure Solution Workshop on practical macromolecular crystallography.
When is it?
The main part of the course will take place across two weeks, ensuring a wide programme is covered and enough breaks and networking opportunities are provided. Students are expected to attend the full workshop including the two preparation days as follows:
- "Before fishing crystals" day- Monday 17th October 2022 - virtual meeting
- "Online set up" day - Tuesday 22nd November 2022 - virtual meeting
- Monday 28th November to Tuesday 6th December 2022 - main workshop taking place in person at Diamond Light Source with a free day on 3rd December
What's the format?
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.

Who can apply?
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 data collection is expected, and applications from students who can bring an interesting project with them (crystals and possibly previously collected datasets) will be favoured.
