CCP4 Study Weekend 2018

Event Details

We cordially invite you to participate in this year's Study Weekend at the East Midlands Conference Centre, University of Nottingham.

The annual CCP4 Study Weekend is a chance to shake off the post-New Year torpor, and work hard and play hard with your fellow crystallographers. Once again, we have put together an exciting scientific programme for  Tuesday and Wednesday, either side of the traditional conference dinner. Please also check out the satellite meetings which may be of interest.

The Study Weekend is a chance to catch up with old friends, but is also a chance to meet the CCP4 staff who will be there in force to demonstrate the latest software and to answer questions - please say hello!

This year, the topic for the Study Weekend is "Multi and Serial Crystal Data Collection and Processing". Sessions will cover:

Session 1 – Introduction and Overview

Session 2 – Need for Multi and Serial Measurements

Session 3 – Sample Preparation and Getting Crystals into the Beam

Session 4 – Processing multi crystal and serial data I

Session 5 – Processing multi crystal and serial data II

Session 6 – Phasing, Refinement and Validation

Session 7 – Future Perspectives

 In keeping with previous CCP4 meetings, the lectures will focus on the presentation and discussion of advanced methods and techniques developed and used by the leaders in the field.
