Advanced methods in macromolecular crystallization IX
9 – 14 August 2021
- Faculty of Science University of South Bohemia České Budějovice, Czech Republic
Course was postponed from May 2020 to August 2021 due to coronavirus pandemic.
The practical crystallization course is in fact the 9th run of the FEBS practical courses named “Advanced methods in macromolecular crystallization“, organized since 2004. The planned course (for undergraduate, postgraduate students and postdocs with an interest in macromolecular crystallization) is rather different from the established courses in protein crystallization. The course is designed to bring over the message of the benefits of more rational approaches to macromolecular crystallization and is aimed at a healthy mixture of advanced theoretical discussions and laboratory experiments. To achieve this goal, we have invited a number of prominent experts in the field as a teachers and tutors.
The course is designed to bring over the message of the benefits of more rational approaches to macromolecular crystallization. It consists of theoretical lectures, seminars as well as practical work and demonstrations (lectures 40%, practical work 50%, discussions 10%). For crystallization experiments, typical recipes using commercial proteins will be used. In addition, students can bring their own proteins and carry out crystallization trials on these during the course.
A poster section is planned in order to encourage participants to present their own work.
The course will be held at the Faculty of Science, University of South Bohemia Ceske Budejovice (http://www.prf.jcu.cz/en/documents/faculty-of-science.html) in historical town Ceske Budejovice located in southern Czechia (https://www.budejce.cz/en/)
