Courses will start on Wednesday October 5th at 8:25 am and finish on Saturday October 8th at noon.

The courses will cover theoretical and practical aspect of:

  • X-ray data processing (diffraction and SAXS)
  • Electron microscopy data processing
  • Phasing, refinement and validation (structure and data)
  • Integration of data from different experimental sources (X-ray diffraction and diffusion, cryo-electron microscopy), structure prediction to solve difficult problem (macromolecule reticent to crystallization, large complexes)
  • On going and future developments (methods, techniques and instruments) for integrated structural biology.

This training course will contain full lectures and practical sessions. Full classes will be done in the morning sessions and practical will be organized each afternoon in subgroups that will be rotating.

Participants may bring their own X-ray and cryo-electron microscopy data. Data collection and processing of solution structure by SAXS or X-ray diffraction will be available using the INSTRUCT CENTER - FRANCE 1 – IGBMC platforms.

A visit of the Center of Integrated Structural Biology of the IGBMC will be included in the workshop program.

This workshop will be couple to the meeting "Current Challenges in Integrated Structural Biology" (October 3 - 4, 2016, IGBMC, Illkirch). We strongly encourage participants of the workshop to  attend the meeting.
