MX Data Collection School at the CLS
The Canadian Macromolecular Crystallography Facility (CMCF) will host a two-week virtual course covering all phases of the experimental process, from data collection to processing to structure solution. Dates: 18 November - 2 December 2022
On November 18 to December 2, 2022, the Canadian Macromolecular Crystallography Facility (CMCF) at the Canadian Light Source will once again be hosting the CLS MX Data Collection School. Our virtual program will be spread over two weeks, with participants getting hands-on experience with mentors for all phases of the experimental process, from data collection to processing to structure solution. We will be joined by special guest Nigel Moriarty (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), a developer for the PHENIX software suite. Participants will attend a series of lectures and be actively engaged in macromolecular crystallography (Mx) data collection at CMCF beamlines. Completing the school enables participants to make effective use of the beamlines remotely, and better equips researchers to collect and analyze diffraction data.
The program will include:
- a series of lectures split over four days spread throughout the course covering sample and experiment preparation, data collection, collection strategies and data reduction,
- in-depth training to use CMCF beamlines and software,
- time for each participant to collect data with a mentor, and
- one-day tutorials covering Data Processing using DIALS, and Structure Solution using PHENIX.
