Joint Open SESAME and Instruct Macromolecular Crystallography Thematic School

Publish Date
28 April, 2019

The Diamond Light Source and the Open-SESAME H2020 project is offering a week-long course in structural biology. The course, offered jointly with Instruct, is scheduled to take place from  30-September-2019 to 4-October-2019 at Diamond Light Source, UK. Lectures and practicals in macromolecular crystallography and bioSAXS will be presented as well as lectures on a range of biophysical characterisation methods that address sample quality and control e.g. multi-angle light scattering, thermal melts, analytical ultracentrifugation and circular dichroism spectroscopy.
Early researchers and students from Middle East countries which are SESAME members are invited to apply early.

Up to 20 places are available for them and participants will be selected based on the scientific quality of the project and the applicant's statement (applicants should provide a CV with a short description of their own research project and a statement on why they wish to attend the course. A letter of support from a supervisor or principle investigator is required.).

The course will cover standard data collection procedures/protocols for MX and BioSAXS followed by advanced data collection methods including microfocus beams for microcrystal data collection, X-ray fragment-based screening and in-line SEC-SAXS.
