We are pleased to announce the *second Macromolecular Crystallography
School 2013 *at the Institut Pasteur de Montevideo (Uruguay). All
details can be found at www.pasteur.edu.uy/mx2013
"Macromolecular Crystallography School 2013: From data processing to
structure refinement and beyond"
*Dates:*April 9th-17th, 2013.
*Site:*Institut Pasteur de Montevideo (Montevideo), Uruguay
*The workshop content:*
Conceived to provide theoretical background and hands-on abilities in
the use of computational tools to exploit X ray diffraction data.
Through lectures, tutorials and hands-on trouble-shooting, the students
will be trained in state-of-the-art macromolecular crystallography.
Particular emphasis will be given to data processing, phasing/structure
determination and model refinement/validation.
The workshop will feature authors and experts of many modern
crystallographic software packages.
This workshop represents the continuation within the series started in
2010 (http://www.pasteur.edu.uy/mxcourse) on Macromolecular
In this opportunity it is being co-organized by the Center for
Structural Biology of the Mercosur CeBEM (www.cebem.org.ar
<http://www.cebem.org.ar>), jointly with the Collaborative Computational
Project Number 4 (CCP4 -- UK www.ccp4.ac.uk <http://www.ccp4.ac.uk>).
Support from the Institut Pasteur International Network, the
International Union of Crystallography and Institut Pasteur de
Montevideo is also greatly acknowledged.
Graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young scientists are
encouraged to apply. Only 20 applicants will be selected for
participation. Participants of the workshop are strongly encouraged to
bring their own problem data sets so they can be used during the
workshop's hands-on sessions.
There is no registration fee.
Support for accommodation, per diem and local transportation will be
provided to all participants from abroad.
Support to cover travel expenses will be considered on a case-by-case
basis. Specific requests should be well-grounded as we will only be able
to select a limited number.
Application *deadline is February 10, 2013*. Application form, the
program, contact info and other details can be found at
