Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the *second Macromolecular Crystallography 
School 2013 *at the Institut Pasteur de Montevideo (Uruguay). All 
details can be found at www.pasteur.edu.uy/mx2013 


"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 is February 10, 2013*. Application form, the 
program, contact info and other details can be found at
