Mx School 2018

8th Annual CLS Mx Data Collection School

June 4 - 8, 2018
Canadian Light Source, Saskatoon

The Canadian Macromolecular Crystallography Facility (CMCF) is pleased to announce an intensive 5-day hands-on synchrotron data collection school at the Canadian Light Source. Participants will attend a series of lectures and be 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 better equips participants to collect diffraction data on-site. This year's invited speaker is Dr. Brian Mark from the University of Manitoba, who will guide participants through the process of structure solution. Given enough interest, an optional crystallography review will be offered on Sunday, June 3. Attendance is limited and the application deadline was April 10, 2018.

Latest News:  Thank you to everyone for making this year's school such a success! We look forward to another exciting school next year. 

Sincerely,
CLS Mx Data Collection School Organizing Committee

Mx School 2016

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.

With special topic: Phenix

June 2 - 6, 2015
Canadian Light Source, Saskatoon

The Canadian Macromolecular Crystallography Facility (CMCF) is pleased to announce an intensive 5-day hands-on synchrotron data collection school at the Canadian Light Source. 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. Paul Adams from the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. He will guide participants through an in-depth look at using Phenix during structure solution. 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, June 1. The application deadline was April 7, 2015.
