5th Annual Summer Course for Crystallography

July 28-Aug. 7, 1996, Pittsburgh, PA. The Course will emphasize the basics of crystallography and will be divided between lectures and laboratory sessions. It will involve primarily the determination of small-molecule structures with samples brought by participants. There will be several lectures on protein crystal growth and the phase problem in macromolecular structures. The university has single-crystal diffractometers with the associated structure determination software packages from all three major vendors (Enraf Nonius CAD-4; Siemens P3 and Rigaku AFC -5). Air-conditioned dormitory accommodations will be available. For application forms and further information contact Prof. Bryan Craven, Dept. of Crystallography, U. of Pittsburgh, PA 15260.
