8th International Workshop on X-ray Radiation Damage to Biological Crystalline Samples
10 Apr 2014 - 10 Apr 2014 - Hamburg, Germany
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
