Subject: 97.06.25 Macromolecular Crystallography Workshop

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is offering a workshop on
"Computational Macromolecular Crystallography", June 25-28, 1997.

The workshop will provide hands-on lectures and tutorials for
the programs PHASES and X-PLOR(online). Some of the recent features of
X-PLOR(online) will be discussed, including
probabilistic MAD phasing and torsion-angle molecular dynamics.

The theory and practical considerations of isomorphous replacement
will be described. Several sample data sets with worked examples will be
provided, including a MAD data set.

Maximum likelihood structure refinement will be approached through a
discussion of the basic theory, a description of the implementation within
X-PLOR, and hands-on exercises.

Workshop instructors will be Prof. Axel Brunger, Yale University,
Prof. Randy Read, University of Alberta, and
Prof. William F. Furey, University of Pittsburgh.

In addition to the exercises provided, participants are also
encouraged to bring their own data, if
available, to work on and discuss with the instructors.
