Advances in light sources and other instrumentation over the last 20 years have pushed the limits of what can be studied by various structural biology methods. Larger, much more challenging molecular ensembles have been studied at unprecedented resolutions, and with ever-smaller and challenging specimens. Hardware and computational developments, particularly in data reduction and modeling, contribute critically to this work. The main goal of this meeting is to highlight the current challenges in structural biology and to stimulate cooperation between theory and experiment. Talks will focus on challenges in structural biology including sample preparation, crystal growth, data collection, processing, and structural dynamics and will span the full gamut of nanocrystallography including XFELs and MicroED, as well as single particle electron cryomicroscopy and complementary methods.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: MAY 31, 2017 (11:59 pm).
