International School of Crystallography 50th Course: Integrative Structural Biology
June 2-11 2017
Over the last 50 years, crystallography has developed from a method capable of determining the structures of isolated, soluble proteins to one able to provide detailed information on mechanisms of action of integral membrane proteins, whole viruses and the complex nano-machines that are central to cellular function. To discover how biology works researchers are now combining the power of crystallography with multiple other methods, spanning from the atomic to cellular scale, and including revolutionary developments in electron cryo-microscopy and tomography. This Course will celebrate its milestone as the 50th in the crystallography series started by Dorothy Hodgkin by focusing on integration: 1) of different techniques, 2) of molecular and cellular approaches and 3) of the crystallographic community, including diversity. The aim is to provide young researchers with a review of the fundamental approaches and latest developments in the application of crystallography and hybrid methods to the structure and function of biological macromolecules and complexes. Lectures will exemplify use of integrated approaches to analyse molecular mechanism in human and pathogen biology. There will be hands-on workshops to provide practical experience and in-depth discussion of topics ranging from sample preparation to data analysis software. To commemorate the achievements of the Erice crystallography school over the past 50 years, the course will feature several sessions that reflect on the past and look to the future to highlight the factors that create an inclusive discipline.

47th Annual Mid-Atlantic Macromolecular Crystallography Meeting
June 7-9, 2017
University of Maryland, Baltimore
Keynote Dr. Petra Fromme - x-ray free electron lasers (XFELs).

IUCr 2017
August 21-28, 2017
Hyderabad, India
The program will be cutting edge with 3 plenaries, 40 keynotes, 119 microsymposia and also posters, commercial exhibits, satellite meetings, workshops and official meetings of the IUCr. The Congress will present the latest and most exciting crystallography research in fundamental areas, chemistry, physics, biology, pharmaceutical sciences and materials research.

Cold Spring Harbor X-Ray Methods in Structural Biology
October 16 - 31, 2017
Cold Spring Harbor, New York
X-ray crystallography has been the cornerstone of Structural Biology for half a century. This intense laboratory/computational course focuses on the major techniques used to determine the three-dimensional structures of macromolecules. It is designed for scientists with a working knowledge of protein structure and function, but who are new to macromolecular crystallography. Topics to be covered include basic diffraction theory, crystallization (proteins, nucleic acids, complexes and membrane proteins), synchrotron X-ray sources and optics, data collection and processing, structure solution by experimental phasing methods (SAD, MAD, MIR, and others) and molecular replacement, electron density maps improvement (solvent flattening, non-crystallographic averaging, etc.), model building and refinement, structure validation, coordinate deposition and structure presentation. In addition, the course will for the first time extend to the theory and computation for small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and single particle cryoelectron microscopy.

Participants learn through extensive hands-on experiments in fully equipped labs, crystallize multiple proteins and determine their crystal structures by several methods while learning through extensive lectures on theory. Informal discussions behind the techniques are frequent and students will be responsible also for collecting questions to be answered in specific sessions.
