Applications are now open for the BCA/CCP4 Summer School in Protein
Crystallography to be held at Diamond (UK) from Tuesday 28th August to
Sunday 2nd September 2012. Applications close 1st May 2012.
The BCA/CCP4 Protein Crystallography Summer School is intended for students
and researchers new to crystallography. Its dual aims are to provide
comprehensive training in crystallography and to promote best practise
within the British crystallographic community. The lectures cover the gamut
of techniques required for a structure solution, from protein expression
through to structure validation. Intensively supervised computer tutorials
enable students to relate the theory presented in the lectures to practice.
Although CCP4 programs will primarily be used in these tutorials, the aim
will be to approach crystallographic questions in a software-agnostic
manner. There will also be a crystal manipulation and cooling workshop.
(Note that the course is scheduled during Diamond synchrotron downtime, so
there will not be active data collection at the Diamond beamlines.)
