Dear colleagues,

I would like to inform you about following course:

7th NCCR Practical Course and EMBN Summer School

October 20 - 24, 2008, Basel Switzerland

Topics include membrane protein expression, solubilization and 
purification | detergent properties and interactions with lipids and 
proteins | functional analysis of membrane proteins | 2D-crystallization 
of membrane proteins | electron microscopy of 2D crystals | image 
processing | application of other visualization techniques: AFM, 
IR-spectroscopy, solid-state NMR |

The course is directed primarily to PhD students and postdocs with some 
previous experience in the structural biology of membrane proteins or 
related fields. The number of participants will be limited to 25.

This course is supported by the European Union Marie Curie Conferences 
and Training Courses Program, and the Swiss NCCR Structural Biology. 
Junior scientists wishing to attend this course may apply for an EU 
Marie Curie Fellowship covering course fees and accommodation costs, and 
providing support towards travel costs.

For further information, please see to the course website

Online registration will be possible end of May.

With best regards,
Patrick Sticher
