Dear Colleagues,

Due to the application deadline originally scheduled for February 10, 
overlapping with Summer holiday dates in several South American 
countries, we have decided to extend the course application deadline 

We invite all of you interested in this workshop, especially the ones 
that have contacted us, to take advantage of this opportunity and send 
your application forms (plus CV and letter of your supervisor): last 
days for applications open!!

Find all details about the workshop and application form in 
www.pasteur.edu.uy/mx2013 <http://www.pasteur.edu.uy/mx2013>- for 
further inquiries and applications contact mx2013 at pasteur.edu.uy

*Second Macromolecular Crystallography School 2013 *at the Institut 
Pasteur de Montevideo (Uruguay).


"Macromolecular Crystallography School 2013: From data processing to 
structure refinement and beyond"

*Dates:*April 9th-17th, 2013.

*Site:*Institut Pasteur de Montevideo (Montevideo), Uruguay

*The workshop content:*

Conceived to provide theoretical background and hands-on abilities in 
the use of computational tools to exploit X ray diffraction data. 
Through lectures, tutorials and hands-on trouble-shooting, the students 
will be trained in state-of-the-art macromolecular crystallography. 
Particular emphasis will be given to data processing, phasing/structure 
determination and model refinement/validation.

The workshop will feature authors and experts of many modern 
crystallographic software packages.

This workshop represents the continuation within the series started in 
2010 (http://www.pasteur.edu.uy/mxcourse) on Macromolecular 

In this opportunity it is being co-organized by the Center for 
Structural Biology of the Mercosur CeBEM (www.cebem.org.ar 
<http://www.cebem.org.ar>), jointly with the Collaborative Computational 
Project Number 4 (CCP4 -- UK www.ccp4.ac.uk <http://www.ccp4.ac.uk>). 
Support from the Institut Pasteur International Network, the 
International Union of Crystallography and Institut Pasteur de 
Montevideo is also greatly acknowledged.


Graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young scientists are 
encouraged to apply. Only 20 applicants will be selected for 
participation. Participants of the workshop are strongly encouraged to 
bring their own problem data sets so they can be used during the 
workshop's hands-on sessions.

There is no registration fee.

Support for accommodation, per diem and local transportation will be 
provided to all participants from abroad.

Support to cover travel expenses will be considered on a case-by-case 
basis. Specific requests should be well-grounded as we will only be able 
to select a limited number.


Application *deadline has now been extended until February 17, 2013*. 
Application form, the program, contact info and other details can be 
found at www.pasteur.edu.uy/mx2013 <http://www.pasteur.edu.uy/mx2013>
