School on X-ray and Neutron Diffraction Techniques
28 May – 30 May 2018, VIB-UGent (Zwijnaarde)
Most people are familiar with protein crystallography but there is more to diffraction than classical crystallography. This school provides an introduction to the vast range of X-ray and neutron diffraction techniques and their application to investigate biological structures and processes. Starting from an introduction of the basics of X-ray and neutron scattering we will move on to their application to proteins and their complexes with other proteins or nucleic acids, to lipid structures and studies of bacterial metabolism. The course will also provide a glimpse of the international research facilities (such as XFEL) available. The school is organized as such that no prior knowledge of scattering techniques is required.
The registration fee is € 120 for non-members of the Belgian Biophysical Society and € 110 for members of the Society. The registration fee includes coffee and lunch. Members of the UGent doctoral school are given a € 20 discount.
The registration fee has to be paid on the account of the Belgian Biophysical Society (000-0146336-60 - IBAN: BE73 0000 1463 3660 - BIC: BPOTBEB1).
