Electron Crystallography Workshop, UC Davis California (Aug 7-11, 2006)

We have the pleasure of announcing the opening of registration for a  
one-week International Workshop on Electron crystallography to be  
held at UC Davis, California (August 7-11, 2006).

The workshop has two major aims:

Training: To provide a unique forum to train skilled biochemists and  
electron microscopists (PhD, Post docs and beyond), in state-of-the- 
art 2D crystallization, electron crystallography data collection and  
image processing.
Topics will cover all aspects of electron crystallography, including:

- Membrane protein solubilisation and crystallization

- Sample preparation for electron microscopy

- Cryo-EM data collection by image recording and electron diffraction

- Image processing, including an introduction to the new software  
systems IPLT and 2dx

- Data evaluation and model building

Advancing the technology: To bring together many of the leading  
groups in electron crystallography to forge innovative collaborations  
for new technology development.
Workshop format: The format of the workshop will be similar to the  
EMBO courses in that lectures will be held in the morning, practicals  
in the afternoon, student poster session before dinner, and science  
talks in the evening. However the workshop will be focusing  
exclusively on electron crystallography related topics.

Registration: The workshop is currently limited to 20 participants.  
The fee for academic participants is US$200, which includes board and  
lodging (twin room). Registration can be completed at http://2dx.org/ 
workshop before the deadline of 1 June 2006.

Further information: For further information please see http://
