Program Overview

We are delighted to announce that the “1st BioStruct-X Mediterranean Macromolecular Crystallography Workshop” will be held at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology from Monday morning, January 4th,  2016  to Wednesday evening, January 6th, 2016.

The Technion Center for Structural Biology (TCSB, http://tcsb.technion.ac.il/Facility) is hosting this workshop jointly with the BioStruct-X Team (http://www.biostruct-x.eu/) and the Weizmann Institute of Science (http://www.weizmann.ac.il/pages/).

This workshop will introduce researchers in the field of macromolecular crystallography to data collection and data processing, experimental phasing (SAD, MAR), structure refinement and analysis. The workshop will consist of a combination of lectures (open to all) and practical hands-on tutorials (restricted to 20 registered participants), including data collection from our state of the art Rigaku FR-X diffractometer.

The modern infrastructure for macromolecular X-ray crystallography and protein characterization at the Technion Center for Structural Biology (TCSB) will be available for workshop participants  through the workshop.

Registration for the workshop will be 200 EUR (includes coffee breaks, lunches and social program) and does not include travel or accommodation expenses. Some fellowships may be available for participants from outside Israel. Please request fellowships upon registration.


NEW DATE: The last date for application has been changed to October 10th 2015. There is still room!
