    Introduction:
    The Collaborative Computational Project for Macromolecules (CCP4) collates and distributes over 100 programs that encompass most aspects of macromolecular structure determination. This full day workshop will aim to introduce CCP4, the CCP4 package and associated software and the CCP4 data formats to new users. Veteran users of the suite are also welcome as they main gain insight into some of the newer aspects of the package! There will be presentations by CCP4 staff and developers as well as the opportunity for informal group or individual discussions and tutorials throughout the ACA at the CCP4 stand 414.

    Objective:
    The objective of this one-day workshop is not to teach crystallography but to teach people how to use the CCP4 package to do protein crystallography. Because of this a certain amount of crystallographic knowledge is assumed.
