8th International Workshop on X-ray Radiation Damage to Biological Crystalline Samples

10 Apr 2014 - 10 Apr 2014 - Hamburg, Germany



Bookmark and Share


This series of workshops was originally concerned with the effects of radiation damage during investigation of protein structures by X-ray crystallography. Other techniques of structural biology are now being included to ensure greater information exchange. The workshop will therefore be of interest to all those using ionising radiation to examine biological structures at the molecular level.

It will consist of around 25 talks of 20-25 minutes each, with slots allocated for discussion.

The sessions will cover:

Session 1 - Basic Understanding of Radiation Damage Mechanisms

Session 2 - Damage at New Sources - XFEL and new synchrotrons

Session 3 - Practical Aspects of Managing and Reducing Radiation Damage

Session 4 - Biological studies affected by Radiation Damage

Session 5 - Radiation Damage in Complementary Fields (electron microscopy, SAXS, EPR, etc.)

Session 6  - Serial Crystallography

Session 7 - Additional Aspects of Radiation Damage
