The Karolinska Institute's Center for Structural Biochemistry will
hold its 6th summer school, entitled "Understanding Protein Structure
Determination" on September 1-6, 1996. This is one of a series of short
graduate courses organized each summer by the Summer University of
Southern Stockholm at NOVUM Research Park, located about 15 km south of
Stockholm. As usual we are aiming for an informal format with students on
the graduate and postdoc levels. A fair amount of time will be set aside for
discussions and social activities.
The topic of the 1996 summer school is intended to cover the two major protein
structure determination techniques: X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy.
Topics such as the physical basis, experimental aspects, computational and
software aspects, quality assessment of determined structures, and effects of
structural heterogeneity and dynamics will be addressed. Emphasis will be put
on the complementarity of the two techniques.
Course fee: SEK 2500 (academic), SEK 5000 (non academic)
Deadlines: Application June 14, 1996; poster abstract August 2, 1996.
