The objective of the “Beyond Rg: BioSAXS Short Course 2022” is to raise the awareness and capabilities of the small-angle scattering (SAS) techniques in the structural biology community by providing an intermediate-level course for those in need of a better understanding of bioSAS theory, and techniques utilized at the APS.
This BioSAXS short course offers an overview of small-angle scattering (SAS, including x-ray and neutron scattering) theory, SAS methods and capabilities for structural biology, and data reduction and analysis tools, to enable the community to submit highly effective beam-time proposals and to facilitate better utilization of the resources at the APS.
The course includes lectures, software practice, and hands-on experimental sessions. An experiment session will be carried out on-site at selected APS small-angle x-ray scattering beamlines for samples that are brought by participants and demo samples. Example data will be provided for software practice. Lecturers will be available during software practice and experimental sessions for one-on-one discussion. Participants are expected to have attained at least a graduate student-level education and are encouraged to have a defined experimental program so that they can collect data for a set of samples that they bring. Participants for in-person must bring their own notebook computers for software practice.
Participation in the hands-on experiment requires you to be on-site, a registered user of the APS, and be current on all core safety training.
Seats are limited.
*No samples are allowed for remote participants.
Note: this course is NOT for soft matter materials which are poly-dispersed.
