RapiData 2019 at SSRL is a practical course in macromolecular X-ray diffraction data collection, data processing and structure solution. The aim of the RapiData course is to educate and train young scientists in data collection and processing methods at synchrotron beamlines, using state-of-the-art software and instrumentation

The course will comprise hands-on experiments at the SSRL beamlines, software tutorials, and lectures on the following topics:

  • Specimen preparation, tactics in data collection
  • X-ray light sources
  • X-ray detectors
  • Data reduction
  • Structure solving by MAD, SAD and Molecular replacement
  • Complementary methods (spectroscopy and small angle scattering)
