3rd annual SIBYLS bioSAXS workshop is ON !!
Date: October 9-10, 2012 Location: Advance Light Source (ALS) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory , Berkeley, CA
The SIBYLS team will host a workshop with strong emphasis on experimental aspects of Small Angle X-ray Scattering techniques in structural biology. The two-day workshop will provide training on experimental techniques and software tutorial sessions primarily for biological SAXS studies. One day of the workshop will be dedicated for data processing by workshop participants. The latest advances in SAXS studies on biological systems will be reported and discussed by several experts in a diverse spectrum of structural biology benefiting from bioSAXS (see program bellow). Also planned are presentations on complementary experimental approaches (MODELLER) and solution structure modeling techniques using ensemble analysis. Participants will receive updates on current developments at SIBYLS and development of software dedicated to analyze SAXS for structural biology.
Enrollment is limited to 30 participants.
Organizers: Michal Hammel, Greg Hura, Robert Rambo
Inquires: Jane Tanamachi
