The practical course named “Advanced methods in macromolecular crystallization VIII“ will take place at the Academic and University Center at Nove Hrady (Czech Republic) from June 10th to June 16th, 2018.
This crystallization course will be continuation of seven previously successfully organized FEBS combined practical and lecture and later practical FEBS courses. The planned course (for undergraduate, postgraduate students and postdocs with an interest in macromolecular crystallization) will be quite different from other established courses in protein crystallization, which are mostly of practical character and tend to neglect the basic theoretical aspects of crystal growth process. New trends and other methods will be discussed last day of the course and hereby the whole range of structural methods will be covered. The main aim and big advantage of the course is a healthy mixture of advanced discussions of the theory and of laboratory experiments. To achieve this goal, we have invited a number of prominent experts in the field as a teachers and tutors.
