Euroconference on Phasing Biological Macromolecules (Phabio)
Martina Franca - Italy;  June 23-27, 2001

Aims:
a) evaluating perspectives and potentiality of the so 
    called DIRECT METHODS;
b) evaluating trend and potentiality of the modern MAD, 
    MIR, SIRAS etc.;
c) integrating direct methods with MAD, MIR, SIRAS techniques 
   and with ELECTRON DIFFRACTION information;
d) estimating potentiality of MODERN REFINEMENT TECHNIQUES and 
   their validation;
e) training young scientists towards modern crystallographic 
   techniques.

A maximum of 80 participants are allowed
(lecturers included) 

Dead line : March 23,  2001

Grants are available for young scientists
