CCPS 2020 — Crystallographic School in South Africa: Data Collection to Structure Refinement and Beyond (CCPS 2020)
31 Mar 2020 - 08 Apr 2020 • Cape Town, South Africa
University of Cape Town, South Africa
We are excited to announce the first CCP4 Crystallographic School in South Africa – Data Collection to Structure Refinement and Beyond, to be held from 31 March to 8 April 2020 at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. The workshop will cover all aspects of protein structure solution by X-ray crystallography, including the fundamental concepts of protein crystallography, crystallographic data collection, processing of diffraction data, phasing, structure refinement, validation and deposition in the PDB, as well as an introduction to CryoEM and Electron Diffraction. Participants will have the opportunity to collect data from their own crystals at Diamond Light Source via remote access, in a data collection session facilitated by Diamond beamline staff. Software covered includes iMosflm, XDS, DIALS, BLEND, PHASER, SHELX, MrBUMP, SIMBAD, ARP/wARP, Coot, REFMAC, Isolde, Crank2, PISA and more. This workshop is most suitable for postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers and early career scientists working in structural biology.
