Please find attached the program of the Workshop, the application form and  further information, at http://www.xtal.iqfr.csic.es/MCS2017/



The workshop has been designed for postgraduate, postdoctoral and  research scientists that deal with macromolecular crystallography but  

need further knowledge on the routine uses, the state of the art and  fundamentals that underlie the modern techniques for macromolecular  

crystallography. The topics will cover crystallographic computing and  fundamentals using XDS, CCP4 and Phenix, as well as the state of the  

art on topics such as the strategies for protein production, data collection,phasing and refinement with ARCCIMBOLDO, SHELX and SIR2014 and modeling 

with COOT. 

This year we have introduced full-day on breakthrough techniques such as XFEL and cryo EM. 


MCS2017 will provide six days of lectures and  workshops. The course is designed for 25 highly motivated attendants.


Requests to participate must be sent by a free-formated E-mail, before  March 10, 2017 to the following address: cursos@fgua.es, indicating  

the motivation to participate and experience on macromolecular  crystallography and including a letter of recommendation from PhD  

Director (only for PhD students).

Accepted participants will be notified by e-mail before March 17, 2017.
