We are pleased to announce the 5th annual SIBYLS bioSAXS workshop “Frontiers in biological SAXS”


Date: October 7-8, 2014 Location: Advance Light Source (ALS) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory , Berkeley, CA

Small angle scattering (SAS) is experiencing a dramatic increase in popularity within the structural biology community. The availability of synchrotron radiation, low-noise detectors, powerful computing hardware, and better algoritms, has made the technique accessible to a much larger audience than ever before. At the same time, biologists are investigating ever more complex systems that pose increasing challenges to conventional crystallography. The latest advances in SAXS studies on biological systems will be reported and discussed in 2 days workshop by invited experts with focus on following four topics (see program). 1) Advances in Synchrotron Scattering technique 2) Dynamic & Flexible Structures in Biomolecules 3) Membrane Protein Scattering 4) Complementary Methods in Crystals and in Solution

The two-day workshop will provide training on experimental techniques and software tutorial sessions primarily for biological SAXS studies. Participants will also receive updates on current development of software dedicated to analyze SAXS for structural biology. Half day of the workshop will be dedicated for data processing by workshop participants. Enrollment is limited to 30 participants. 

Organizers: Michal Hammel, Greg Hura

Inquires: Jane Tanamachi
