CCP4 Study Weekend 2020

CCP4 Study Weekend 2020


The annual CCP4 Study Weekend is a chance to shake off the post-New Year torpor, and work hard and play hard with your fellow crystallographers. Once again, we have put together an exciting scientific programme for Wednesday and Thursday, either side of the traditional conference dinner. Please also check out the satellite meetings which may be of interest.

The Study Weekend is a chance to catch up with old friends, but is also a chance to meet the CCP4 staff who will be there in force to demonstrate the latest software and to answer questions - please say hello!

This year, the topic for the Study Weekend is "Model Building and beyond". Sessions will cover:

Session 1 – High resolution EM/MX model building and automated tools/methods

Session 2 – Getting interactive – artisan hand-crafted model making

Session 3 – Sugar, salt, and nucleic acids (it’s gluten free!)

Session 4 – When your new year's resolution is not that high

Session 5 – Validation: everyone’s a critic

Session 6 – The last mile Ångström of structure solution (model completion and analysis)

In keeping with previous CCP4 meetings, the lectures will focus on the presentation and discussion of advanced methods and techniques developed and used by the leaders in the field.
