EMBO Practical Course on

Solution Scattering from Biological Macromolecules

September 5-14, 2001
European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Hamburg outstation
Organisers: Dmitri Svergun, EMBL Hamburg and Regine Willumeit, GKSS Research Center, Geesthacht.
Program of the course and slides in PDF

As an introductory material for solution X-ray scattering it is recommended to read a chapter from the HERCULES training course book P. Vachette & D.I. Svergun (2000) Small-angle X-ray scattering by solutions of biological macromolecules from "Structure and Dynamics of Biomolecules" edited by E. Fanchon, G. Geissler, J.-L. Hodeau, J.-R. Regnard and P.A. Timmins. New York: Oxford University Press, 199-237 (by permission of Oxford University Press). Please note that the PDF-file is large (26 Mb) – be patient during download.

A good introduction to neutron scattering from biological macromolecules with many useful links.

For information about programs and algorithms used for the data analysis at EMBL Hamburg, check the ATSAS program package on this Web site with the relevant reprints.
