AIC news: International School on Biological Crystallization – Granada, 22- 27 maggio 2011

The Laboratorio de Estudios Cristalográficos is pleased to announce the 3nd
International School on Biological Crystallization (ISBC), to be held in
Granada (Spain) during May 22-27, 2011. This initiative aims to foster the
training of postgraduate/Postdoctoral students and research scientists from
industry and academy backgrounds who deal on a daily basis with biological
crystallization but seek fundamental knowledge on the behaviour of
crystallizing solutions. The International School will provide five days of
lectures and practical demonstrations focused on the fundamentals of
crystallization from solution and its applications to the field of
crystallization of biological materials, including biological
macromolecules, biominerals and biomimetic materials. Particular emphasis
will be paid to the crystallization of membrane proteins and large
macromolecular complexes with one day devoted to case studies on these
subjects. For more information, please visit
