Webinar: Macromolecular crystallography in a lab


Wednesday, September 22, 2021
3 p.m. (CEST) / 9 a.m. (CT)
with Dr. Daniel Kneller from the ORNL (Oak Ridge National Laboratory)


Synchrotron radiation has given structural biologists many reasons to be very happy: high quality data, automated routines, and high-throughput of samples. Why then to collect your data in a lab?    

In this webinar, Dr. Daniel Kneller, a postdoctoral researcher at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, will explain the unique insights for anti-coronavirus drug design enabled by home-source X-ray diffraction data at room-temperature. He will present the current capabilities of a laboratory diffractometer to solve macromolecular structures, discuss protein crystal sample handling for data collection, reflect on obtained data quality, and significance for joint X-ray/neutron model refinement.
