th EMBO Practical Course on Solution Scattering from Biological Macromolecules
October 25 — November 1, 2021
EMBL Hamburg, Germany
Organisers: Dmitri Svergun, Al Kikhney, Melissa Gräwert
Registration deadline: July 31, 2021
The course aims at young biochemists/biophysicists and researchers active in related structural methods with little or no experience in solution scattering. The course will cover basics of SAXS/SANS, instrumentation, data collection, modelling techniques and complementary use with other methods. The students are encouraged to bring their own samples to perform synchrotron solution scattering experiments on-site and the results will be used for practical tutorials and discussed on the last day of the course.
The course is supported by BIOSAXS GmbH.
Single copies of the articles below can be downloaded and printed only for the reader's personal research and study.
