The In Situ Serial Crystallography Workshop ISSX2 – the second of its kind (http://indico.psi.ch/event/issx) – is dedicated to the presentation of the in meso in situ serial crystallography (IMISX) method (Huang et al. 2016 ActaD) for the X-ray structure determination of membrane proteins.
The workshop consists of introductory lectures, as well as presentations of serial crystallography activities at both synchrotron and XFEL facilities. The main part of the workshop focuses on hands-on practicals on methods for growing crystals of membrane proteins by the in meso or lipidic cubic phase (LCP) method, for collecting serial diffraction data on micro-crystals directly in situ and for processing the data most efficiently for high-resolution structure determination.
There is no registration fee and all local expenses will be covered, but participants are requested to take care of their travel arrangements. The workshop is limited to 20 students. The application deadline is Sept 1.
