Macromolecular Crystallographic Data Collection and Processing

18th - 23rd November 1996

MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UK


	This course will cover the measurement of monochromatic X-ray
diffraction data from crystals of macromolecules. Lectures will cover
all aspects of data collection and processing. Students will collect
and process data from a number of area detectors (electronic and image
plates).

	Topics to be covered:-

-	X-ray sources, optics, collimation 
- 	crystal freezing
-	Detectors:  image plates, CCDs
-	Data collection strategies
-	Crystal orientation determination
-	Integration, profile fitting
-	Data reduction

Instructors: P.R. Evans, A.G.W. Leslie (course organizers), U.W.
Arndt, A.R. Faruqi, J.F.W. Mallett (Cambridge), Z. Dauter
(York/Hamburg),
E. Garman (Oxford), W. Kabsch (Heidelberg), Z.Otwinowski (Dallas),
A.Howard (IMCA Chicago), P. Tucker (Heidelberg).

	20 participants will be selected, with preference to post-docs
or students currently (or about to be) involved in data collection,
and to those from Europe. There will be a course fee of GBP 100. Bed &
breakfast will be provided. Some very limited funds are available to
assist cases of hardship or long-distance travel (within Europe).
Applicants should send (by letter or Email) a CV, a statement of how
they will benefit from the course, and a recommendation, by 18th
October 1996, to Dr. P.R. Evans or Dr. A.G.W. Leslie, MRC Laboratory
