		    Practical Course in 
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

	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
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
