 Scope of the course

This practical course addresses young scientists who intend to apply single and multiple wavelength anomalous scattering (SAD & MAD) methods in macromolecular structure determination.

The course aims to impart the theoretical and practical basis for the 3-dimensional structure determination of bio-macromolecules using Anomalous Dispersion techniques.

Through a series of lectures, software demonstrations, practicals on the ESRF beamlines and tutorials, participants will get insights into all aspects of the structure determination process, including:

  • beamline instrumentation
  • good data collection practice and processing
  • heavy atom substructure determination
  • phasing

There will also be sessions focusing on automated structure solution procedures and newer methods which exploit small anomalous scattering signals from crystals of native macromolecules. 

A session will be dedicated to highlight structures that have been solved recently using anomalous dispersive techniques on the ESRF beamlines.

We look forward to welcoming you in Grenoble!
