XXIV School of Pure and Applied Biophysics
The XXIV School of Pure and Applied Biophysics on "Applications of X-rays and Neutron Scattering in Biology" will be held in Venice, 27-31 January, 2020.
Scattering techniques based on X-rays and neutrons have proven to be two of the most powerful techniques for studying biological structures. At the interface between Biology, Physics and Chemistry, the school will survey recent advances of X-rays and neutrons techniques to probe the properties of biological structures, from both static and dynamic view-point. Combining theoretical and application lectures, the school will introduce the following topics: The physics of scattering, Neutron production and neutron facilities, X-ray production and X-ray facilities, Reflectometry, Small-angle Scattering, Crystal and powder diffraction, Inelastic scattering, X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS), Imaging, XFEL in biology. In addition to lectures, a visit to the ELETTRA synchrotron in Trieste will allow students to perform practical activities in state-of-art instruments.
Deadline for registration: 6 December 2019.
