Mx School

6th Annual CLS Mx Data Collection School

With special topic: Molecular Replacement & COOT

May 24 - 28, 2016
Canadian Light Source, Saskatoon

The Canadian Macromolecular Crystallography Facility (CMCF) is pleased to be continuing an intensive 5-day hands-on synchrotron data collection school at the Canadian Light Source in 2016. Participants will attend a series of lectures and be actively engaged in macromolecular crystallography (Mx) data collection at CMCF beamlines. Completing the school will enable participants to make effective use of the beamlines remotely and will better equip participants to collect diffraction data on-site. This year's invited speaker is Dr. Jeffrey Lee from the University of Toronto. He will offer participants an unique opportunity to explore the molecular replacement method and making effective use of COOT for model building. Participants should have a basic grounding in crystallography prior to attending the course. Given enough interest, an optional introductory review will be offered on Monday, May 23. Application deadline was March 29, 2016.
