The SSRL Structural Molecular Biology Group Group hosts a 3-day comprehensive workshop on the use of non-crystalline small-angle x-ray scattering and diffraction techniques in structural biology research. The workshop will focus on solution x-ray scattering studies on biological macromolecules and macromolecular complexes. The workshop will cover the basic theory of small angle scattering, experimental aspects of solution scattering as well as recent applications of solution scattering in structural biology research. We will have extensive software and data analysis tutorials covering all aspects from the basic SAXS analysis to advanced modeling methods. Participants are encouraged to bring their own solution samples for the data collection tutorial at SSRL Beam Line 4-2 and the data analysis and modelling tutorials.

The registration fee for the 3-day workshop is $100. Morning and afternoon refreshments will be provided during the workshop, as well as a workshop dinner.

The SSRL Structural Molecular Biology Program is funded by the National Institutes of Health, National Institute of General Medical Sciences Division of Biomedical Technology, Bioinformatics and Computational Biology and the Department of Energy, Office of Biological and Environmental Research.
