This year the University of York will be hosting a Protein Crystallography Summer School, sponsored by CCP4 and others, which will take place 1-7 September. (This school has previously been held biennially in St Andrews.)
The course aims to cover the theoretical and practical aspects of protein crystallography from protein _expression_ and purification, through crystal growth to data collection on in-house and synchrotron sources, phasing methods, automated model building and phase extension, refinement, and validation. Hands-on sessions in data processing (XIA2, DIALS), molecular replacement, MAD/SAD phasing, refinement and electron density map interpretation (in COOT) will be included.
The School is intended for postgraduates or postdocs new to crystallography. The week is very intensive, and gives a concentrated overview of the methods which many find useful.
As in the past, priority is given to UK applicants because of the funding arrangements, but is open to a limited number of overseas applicants.
