Instruct-ERIC course on macromolecular X-ray, electron and neutron crystallography

Date: 29-Jun-2021 to 06-Jul-2021

Contact: Madalena Gallagher


Date: 29-Jun-2021 to 06-Jul-2021

The remote practical course covers principles, differences and applications of macromolecular crystallography using X-rays, neutrons and electrons. The course is targeted to PhD students and postdocs whose research project focuses on solving structures using crystallography.


You will need a computer/laptop to be able to participate in this remotely delivered course. Further details of optimal computer requirements and software that should be installed will be communicated prior to the course. There is a possibility to collect data remotely at Diamond Light Source during the course using own crystals.
