MXIS 2017: Practical course on in-plate crystallography, with special focus on ligand screening, 29 Nov. - 1 Dec., EPN Campus

The MXIS training course was dedicated to in situ protein crystallography, with a special emphasis on ligand screening. This workshop was organized in two parts, each one lasting for 3 days. It includes:

  • Part 1 (Montpellier): full lectures at the “Centre de Biochimie Structurale” followed by practicals. Topics: plate pre-coating for “Dry” co-crystallization, in situ screening on a lab source).
  • Part 2 (Grenoble): full lectures at the “Institut de Biologie Structurale” and practical sessions at the ESRF, on beamlines FIP-BM30A and ID30B. Full classes will be in day 1 while practical sessions will be organized in subgroups, from day 2 to day 3. Topics: in situ diffraction for crystal screening and structure resolution, in situ data processing.

Possibility was given to participants to practice on their own samples. Applicants were be required to submit a short CV and a motivation letter to Jean-Luc Ferrer.

8 participants from 7 different countries attended this workshop, organized by IBS, ESRF , EMBL (Grenoble) and CBS (Montpellier). MXIS-2017 was made possible thanks to financial support from IBS, EMBL, and the FRISBI program.
