The first summer school on Structural Biology of RNP complexes takes place in year 2 and is focussed on dry lab methods to study RNP complexes. It contains modules on X-ray crystallography, Electron Microscopy (EM), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR), Small Angle Scattering (SAS) and Chemical tools. The school is organized by T. Carlomagno and is held at the EMBL. The EMBL hosts all four disciplines and has the available infrastructure, both in terms of software and hardware, for the practical courses. Furthermore the EMBL has a fully functional teaching laboratory. The courses are taught by T. Carlomagno and F. Allain (NMR and SAS), E. Conti (X-ray diffraction), C. Sachse (EM), R. Micura (RNA chemistry) and F. Gabel (SAS) with the help of other members of their labs.
Who should apply?
The summer school is directed to the RNPnet students with little experience in dry lab disciplines, or to those who are experts in one of the four disciplines, but would like to learn more about the other ones.
