Welcome to the Joint Workshop
Crystallography Made Easy through Automation:
Bringing structural determination to the general biology community
October 29th, 2008
University of Pittsburgh
Structural Biology Department
Pittsburgh, PA

Recent advances in experimental automation have brought macromolecular structure determination closer to the non-experts in the field. This workshop will introduce the participants to what structural information crystallography can provide, the basics of crystallographic techniques (protein crystallization, x-ray diffraction data collection, and data analysis) and then demonstrate how these steps may be simplified by taking advantage of the automated facilities available at Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (SSRL) and the Hauptman Woodward Institute.

The workshop will be immediately preceding The 66th Annual Pittsburgh Diffraction Conference held on October 30, 31 and November 1st at the Holiday Inn University Center, Pittsburgh PA.
