Just a reminder that there is still time to register for the Gordon  
Conference on Diffraction Methods in Structural Biology, that will be  
held at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine from 18-23rd July.

The program (see below) covers all aspects of macromolecular  
crystallography, from crystallization to structure solution and  
refinement, and includes sessions on complementary techniques and the  
potential of free electron lasers.

Many of the leading methods developers will be present and the format  
of the meeting, with free afternoons, provides ample opportunities for  
informal discussions.

Further details, including a full program and details on the  
application procedure can be obtained from:


We hope to see you there !
