Under the auspices of the Belgian Biophysical Society, and supported by the
Doctoral School of Natural Sciences – UGent, we would like to invite you to the
School on X-ray and Neutron Diffraction Techniques, hosted by Ghent University,
which will be held at the VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research in
Zwijnaarde (Ghent), Belgium, on May 28-30, 2018.
The aim of the school is to provide a survey of the broad range of X-ray and
neutron scattering methods and their application to investigate biological
structures and processes. Starting from an introduction to the basics of X-ray
and neutron scattering we will move on to their application to study proteins
and their complexes with other proteins or nucleic acids, to probe
lipid/membrane structures and biological processes such as bacterial
metabolism. Our program will also provide a survey of the state-of-the-art in
terms of research facilities available worldwide to enable experimental work
employing X-ray and neutron scattering.
Our school is organized such that no prior knowledge of scattering techniques
