  Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the upcoming EMBO practical course on 
"Computational Structural Biology - from data to structure to function"

EMBL Hamburg, Germany
15th - 19th April 2013

The course covers computational aspects of protein structure 
determination, validation and analysis, including background in X-ray 
crystallography, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, Electron 
Microscopy and Small-angle X-ray scattering and hands-on experience in 
model building from X-ray diffraction data, comparing and integrating 
different types of structural data, and the differences in 
interpretation. Students will also learn to critically examine and 
validate data from these techniques.

The course is aimed at PhD students and post-docs working on the 
collection and analysis of protein structure data. The goal is to 
provide them with insight into the protein structure determination 
process, how to critically assess the quality of data from models, and 
to provide expertise in the integration and visualisation of data from 
different techniques, thus allowing the analysis of protein structure 
data for functional relationships.

For more information and to apply, please go to:


Application deadline: 15th February 2013

We look forward to receiving your application!
Kind regards,
Gary Battle
