We will present RapiData 2013, the fifteenth offering of our popular
Rapid Data Collection and Structure Solving at the NSLS: A Practical
Course in Macromolecular X-Ray Diffraction Measurement
The course will be held 21-26 April 2013: http://www.bnl.gov/RapiData/.
Students could be at any level from advanced undergraduate to full professor.
The course should accommodate 48 students total. We encourage all students to
bring their own specimens for data collection, and to bring old data for the
data-reduction and structure-solving tutorials.
Please read the Course Announcement at http://www.bnl.gov/RapiData/.
You'll see that many experts in the field will be available for lectures
and tutorials. You'll find the application materials on the Course
Application tab at this site.
For the eleventh time we will hold a short lecture course on the fundamentals
of crystallography for roughly five hours on Sunday 21 April. The body of the
RapiData course really requires that students have a healthy knowledge of
crystallography. For potential students who have some experience but are shaky
about fundamentals, this course will help. There will be a small additional fee
for the fundamentals course, to pay for Saturday night accomodations and food
on Sunday morning and noon.
Latin American Scientists: Several scholarships are available, from the
International Union of Crystallography, to pay partial travel and
subsistence costs for Latin-American students and junior faculty (under 40
yrs). Please apply for the course, and then contact R. Sweet
(sweet from bnl.gov) if you are interested in applying for a scholarship.
In accordance with the standards of the International Union of
Crystallography, we observe the basic policy of non-discrimination,
affirming the right and freedom of scientists to associate in
international scientific activity without regard to such factors as
citizenship, religion, creed, political stance, ethnic origin, race,
colour, language, age, or gender, in accordance with the Statutes of the
International Council for Science. At this course no barriers will exist
beyond the application procedure that would prevent the participation of
bona fide scientists.
Please apply or send your students to our course,
