Applications are now open for the 2019 edition of RapiData at SSRL. RapiData is a practical course in macromolecular X-ray diffraction data collection, data processing and structure solution. The aim of the RapiData course is to educate and train young scientists in data collection and processing methods at synchrotron beamlines, using state-of-the-art software and instrumentation. The course will be held at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) located on the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory campus in Menlo Park, CA, from May 5-10 2019. Course organizers for 2019 are Silvia Russi, Clyde Smith and Jeney Wierman.
The course will comprise hands-on experiments at the SSRL beamlines, software tutorials, and lectures on the following topics:
Specimen preparation, Data collection strategies, X-ray light sources, X-ray detectors, Data reduction, Structure solution by MAD, SAD and Molecular Replacement, Complementary methods (spectroscopy and small angle scattering)
Please visit http://smb.slac.stanford.edu/news/rapidata/rapidata-2019/ and use the links on the "registration" page to apply for the course. The application deadline is December 31 2018. Successful applicants will be notified early in January 2019 and invited to register and book accommodation at the SLAC Guesthouse at that time.
