Workshop on Advanced Diffraction Data Collection with Multi-Axis Goniometer and Single-Photon Counting Detector in Protein Crystallography
06 Nov 2012 - 08 Nov 2012 - Paul Scherrer Institute, Villigen Switzerland
Many multi-axis goniometers and PILATUS detectors have been installed at many macromolecular crystallography beamlines worldwide, however their potentials have not been fully exploited. This workshop will address aspects including application of multi-axis goniometer for difficult phasing experiments, data collection optimization for single-photon counting detectors, as well as data processing optimization to take full advantage of crystal geometry and detector properties. Hardware and software developments, as well as user applications will be covered.
The workshop contains both lectures and practicals. Data collection practicals will be performed at beamline X06DA at the Swiss Light Source on a multi-axis goniometer PRIGo and a PILATUS 2M detector. Data processing tutorials will be on the following programs: AutoPROC (XDS/SCALA), PROTEUM, and CrysAlisPro.
There will be 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 participants.
