Dear colleagues,

just a reminder, we're close to the deadline for applications. Details 

Thank you!


*International Workshop “Macromolecular Crystallography : Introduction 
and Applications"*

*April 26 - May 7, 2010*

*Institut Pasteur de Montevideo*


The principal aim of this course, is to give intense hands-on training
in all main aspects of macromolecular 3D structure determination by X
ray diffraction.

The course will include lectures delivered by a number of
international experts in the discipline, linked to hands-on
experimental work and demonstrations.

Special emphasis will be given to :

* Experiment design : manual and robotic crystallogenesis of
macromolecules, X ray diffraction of single crystals, data collection
* Diffraction data processing
* Model refinement and structural analysis


* Graduate Students (MSc and PhD)
* Postdocs
* Young Research Scientists


Candidates should send the following information :

1. -Short CV (including age, current position, scientific interests,
2. -Letter of motivation (the applicant should stress how
Macromolecular Crystallography is included in her/his ongoing
scientific project)
3. -Reference letter from the apllicant's supervisor


Inscription fees are fully covered for all accepted students.
Applicants from abroad with no financial support, are welcome to apply
for a lodging and per diem expenses scholarship. This should be
inlcuded as a separate document at the time of application. A limited
number of traveling aids will be available: arguments backing this
request should be duly explained, to be evaluated on a case by case


All applications should be received until March 7 2010. They should be
sent as a single pdf document to : crystallography at pasteur.edu.uy
