Assessment report after workshop

Two days practical course on basics of biological small angle x-ray scattering (SAXS) was organised on September 24-25t at CEITEC, buliding A35. Participants were introduced to the practical aspects of SAXS experiment setup during laboratory practical and excursion to the Core Facility X-ray diffraction and BioSAXS. One 2h lecture on SAXS basic principles given by Alexey Kikhney (EMBL-Hamburg)  was open to broader audience. The computer practicals were focused on deriving of integral parameters from SAXS data, data quality assessment, ab initio modeling and rigid body modeling. Each practical was introduced by step-by-step tutorial given by lecturers (Alexey Kikhney:  EMBL-Hamburg; Tomas Klumpler:: CEITEC-MU, Maxim Petukhov: RAS-Moscow). Participants were encouraged to bring own SAXS data and didactic cases were discussed.
