This is just a reminder that the deadline for applications for the CCP4 school: From data collection to structure refinement and beyond, is April 9.

 

A full program and the list of speakers is now available. These and other details (application process, accommodations, site access, contacts etc) can be found at the workshop website at http://www.ccp4.ac.uk/schools/APS-2010/

 

Workshop will include data collection, processing, structure solution, model building, refinement, validation, deposition to PDB, automation of many steps etc. Participants are encouraged to bring their own crystals, raw data or processed data for hands-on problem solving under the guidance of software developers and other experts.

Subject: [PyMOL] Third CCP4 workshop in USA, at APS, June 10-17

 

Dear Colleagues,

 

Building on the success of the past 2 years, we are pleased to announce the third annual CCP4 workshop at Advanced Photon Source (APS), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). All details can be found at http://www.ccp4.ac.uk/schools/APS-2010/

 

Title:

"CCP4 school: >From data collection to structure refinement and beyond"

Dates: June 10 to 17.

Site: Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, Illinois (Near Chicago), USA

 

The workshop content:

First two days of the workshop will be dedicated to beamline training and data collection on GM/CA-CAT beamlines 23ID-B and 23ID-D. For data collection, only the participants' crystals will be used.

 

The workshop will feature authors and experts of many modern crystallographic software packages. It will be organized in three

Sections – lectures, tutorials and hands-on trouble-shooting.

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 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 workshop and/or hands-on sessions.

 

Application:

Application deadline is April 9. Application form, the program, contact info and other details can be found at

http://www.ccp4.ac.uk/schools/APS-2010/

 

Fees: there will be a $250 contribution towards lodging paid directly to Argonne Guest House. All other local expenses (rest of the hotel bill, meals and refreshments) will be covered by the workshop.
