We are pleased to announce the seventh annual CCP4 crystallographic summer school at Advanced Photon Source (APS), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). All details can be found at
Title:"CCP4 crystallographic school: >From data collection to structure refinement and beyond"
Dates: June 24 to July 2.
Site: Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, Illinois (Near Chicago), USA
The school content: Data collection workshop the first two days: beamline training and data collection on GM/CA@APS beamlines 23ID-B and 23ID-D. For data collection, only the participants'
crystals will be used.
Software workshop: The rest of the time after data collection will feature many modern crystallographic software packages taught by authors and other experts. It will be organized in three sections – lectures, tutorials and hands-on
There will be model data sets available for tutorials but data, provided by participants, will have higher priority for the hands-on sessions.
Applicants: Graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young scientists at the assistant professor level are encouraged to apply. Only 20 applicants will be selected for participation. Participants of the workshop are strongly
encouraged to bring their own problem data sets or crystals so the problems can be addressed during data collection and/or computation workshops.
Fees: There is no fee for the workshop. The students will be responsible for their transportation and lodging. The workshop organizers can help make the reservations at economical lodging
at the Argonne Guest House. The workshop will also cover the expenses for all meals and refreshments.
We hope to see you at the school,
