The practical crystallization course is in fact the seventh run of the FEBS practical courses named “Advanced methods in macromolecular crystallization“, organized since 2004 at the Academic and University Center at Nove Hrady (Czech Republic). The planned course (for undergraduate, postgraduate students and postdocs with an interest in macromolecular crystallization) is rather different from the established courses in protein crystallization. The course is designed to bring over the message of the benefits of more rational approaches to macromolecular crystallization and is aimed at a healthy mixture of advanced discussions of the theory and laboratory experiments. For crystallization experiments, typical recipes using commercial proteins will be used. In addition, students can bring their own proteins and carry out crystallization trials on these during the course. A poster section is planned in order to encourage participants to disscuss their own work.To achieve this goal, we have invited a number of prominent experts in the field as a teachers and tutors.
