Under the auspices of the Belgian Biophysical Society, and supported by the Doctoral School of Natural Sciences - UGent, they would like to invite you to the School on X-ray and Neutron Diffraction Techniques, hosted by Ghent University, which will be held at the VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research in Zwijnaarde (Ghent), Belgium, on May 28-30, 2018.
The aim of the school is to provide a survey of the broad range of X-ray and neutron scattering methods and their application to investigate biological structures and processes. Starting from an introduction to the basics of X-ray and neutron scattering we will move on to their application to study proteins and their complexes with other proteins or nucleic acids, to probe lipid/membrane structures and biological processes such as bacterial metabolism. Our program will also provide a survey of the state-of-the-art in terms of research facilities available worldwide to enable experimental work employing X-ray and neutron scattering.
Their school is organised such that no prior knowledge of scattering techniques is required.
