Protein structure determination by X-ray crystallography is often limited by lack of access to high-quality crystals that generate sufficiently detailed diffraction patterns. However, X-ray patterns usually also contain continuous diffraction, which is largely ignored but could in principle provide sufficient information to overcome this limitation.

We are pleased to announce the third International Summer School of Crystallography at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science at DESY, Hamburg (D). Prof. Carmelo Giacovazzo will lecture on the basics of crystallography, covering mathematical understanding of crystallographic point and space groups, diffraction experiments, structure factor calculations, systematic absences, determination of space groups and many additional topics.

BioXFEL is sponsoring a summer internship program to be held at Rice University. This 10 week internship will be designed to incorporate undergraduate students from the surrounding greater Houston area. Special consideration will be given to students from historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) as well as other underrepresented groups. Students will be given the opportunity to engage in scientific research projects involving crystallography, biochemistry, protein chemistry and other XFEL-related topics.
