Free BioSAXS workshop


Date: May 9th 2019

Location: Advanced Light Source at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, CA

Building 6, conference room #2202

SAXS_board.JPG This one-day workshop for current and future SIBYLS users will provide participants with software tutorial sessions for biological SAXS. The latest advances in SAXS studies on biological systems will be discussed with particular focus on advances in synchrotron scattering techniques, modeling of dynamic and flexible structures, and integrating bioSAXS analysis within high resolution structures.
Updates on current developments of software for SAXS analysis pertaining to structural biology will be reviewed.

We will begin with a brief run-through on current updates. Greg Hura, Berkeley Lab’s SAXS Beamline Scientist will introduce the future of high throughput. Michal Hammel, another one of Berkeley Lab’s SAXS Beamline Scientists, will present current developments in size exclusion chromatography coupled SAXS (SEC-SAXS) and give a talk about integrating high-resolution models in the SAXS modeling. Students and postdocs are encouraged to bring their own SAXS data collected at SIBYLS. We will provide an opportunity for participants to present and discuss their projects with the group. If you are interested in discussing your SAXS project, please email Kathryn Burnett. This will provide for a flux of ideas among workshop participants, and inspire new perspectives for future data analysis. During the afternoon session we will provide practical hands-on exercises with experts in SAXS software for data processing (SCATTER, FrameSlice and RAW, SAXS similarity maps, modeling tools (FOXS - MultiFoXS, BILBOMD and SAXS shape calculator).
