Register for Exploring Structural Database Use in Crystallography
The U.S. National Committee for Crystallography (USNC/Cr) of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is providing an online workshop series for students and researchers on the use, development, and maintenance of crystallographic and structural databases. Encompassing macromolecular, small molecule, and powder diffraction information, the series will include training options for each of the following database resources:
- Crystallographic Open Database (COD)
- Cambridge Structural Database (CSD)
- Electron Microscopy Data Bank (EMDB)
- International Center for Diffraction Data (ICDD)
- Inorganic Crystal Structure Database (ICSD)
- Integrated Resource for Reproducibility in Macromolecular
- Crystallography (IRRMC)
- RCSB Protein Data Bank (PDB)
- SBGrid Software and Data Bank
Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty members and researchers in any of the crystallographic, diffraction, and imaging sciences affiliated with the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) are encouraged to register and participate in the training sessions that interest them.
Undergraduate students with appropriate research experience will be considered.
The series will kick off with a Keynote Presentation on The Exemplary Crystallography and Structural Databases by John R Helliwell on March 21.
