X6A Workbench: Hands-on Synchrotron Structural Biology

January 28 - February 1, 2013


The NIGMS facility at the National Synchrotron Light Source is offering comprehensive hands-on training in synchrotron data collection and analysis for biophysicists, biochemists and molecular biologists.  The goal is to provide participants an insight into Structural Biology methods available at a synchrotron radiation facility.  Applications can be sent throughout the year.  Four to six participants are invited to follow a four day experiment at the X6A beamline.  Most of the program will concentrate in the development of experimental skills.  Introductory lecture will be presented by local experts.

Participants are invited to bring their samples for the experiments but samples will be provided for training.

In addition, a symposium celebrating 10 years of successful operations at beamline X6A will be held on Friday, February 1st. 

The General registration fee for this workbench is $350.00; Students/Post Docs registration fee is $300.00.

Note:  Registration fees will be used towards breakfasts, breaks, lunches and workbench dinners.
