Dear All,

this is an announcement of the EMBO Practical Course on Solution Scattering
from Biological Macromolecules. The message is sent to several listservers,
and I apologize if some of you will receive it more than once. 

With best regards   D.Svergun

EMBO practical course on Solution Scattering from Biological Macromolecules 

The course will take place at the EMBL, Hamburg Outstation, Germany, on
23-30 October 2006

D. Svergun, M. Petoukhov, P.Konarev, M.Roessle (European Molecular Biology
Laboratory, Hamburg Outstation)
The course aims at young biochemists/biophysicists and researchers active in
related structural methods (protein crystallography, NMR, electron
microscopy) with little or no experience in solution scattering. The course
will cover basics of SAXS/SANS, instrumentation, data collection, modelling
techniques and complementary use with other methods. The students will be
encouraged to bring their own samples to perform synchrotron solution
scattering experiments on-site and the results will be used for practical
tutorials and discussed on the last day of the course. 

There is no registration fee and accommodation and subsistence are covered
for accepted applicants. Scientists from industry will be required to pay a
fee of Euro 1500 direct to EMBO. A limited number of bursaries will be
available towards covering travel costs and will be awarded competitively. 

The course materials, preliminary list of speakers and on-line application
forms to attend the course are available from

The deadline for applications is 1st August 2006. The applications will be
considered by a Selection Committee and the results of the selection
procedure will be sent to applicants by E-mail within about three weeks of
the closing date.
