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

The MXIS training course is dedicated to in situ protein crystallography, with a special emphasis on ligand screening. This workshop is 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 will be given to participants to practice on their own samples. A fragment library may be available to be used on your sample (to be confirmed later on)
The application period will close on the 8th of October. Applicants will be required to submit a short CV and a motivation letter to Jean-Luc Ferrer.
