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) was pleased to continue an intensive 5-day hands-on synchrotron data collection school at the Canadian Light Source in 2016. Participants attended a series of lectures and were actively engaged in macromolecular crystallography (Mx) data collection at CMCF beamlines. Completing the school enables participants to make effective use of the beamlines remotely and equips participants to collect diffraction data on-site. This year's invited speaker was Dr. Jeffrey Lee from the University of Toronto. He offered participants a unique opportunity to explore the molecular replacement method and making effective use of COOT for model building. Additionally, an optional introductory review was offered on Monday, May 23.
