Special Issue "Selected Papers from the HTCC4 (Hot Topics in Contemporary Crystallography 4)"
A special issue of Crystals (ISSN 2073-4352).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 13 December 2019
On behalf of the organizing committee of the HTCC4, we are pleased to welcome you to the Hot Topics in Contemporary Crystallography 4 workshop to be held at the Mlini, Dubrovnik, Croatia, October 1–6, 2019. (URL: http://htcc4.org/).
HTCC4 will entirely be dedicated to structural biology. Over four intense working days, we will cover techniques that go beyond classical crystallography, yet which complement it: XFEL – X-ray free electron laser (HT1), cryo electron microscopy (HT2), NMR in macromolecular structural research (HT3), and biomolecular in-silico simulations (HT4). The lecturers and tutors shall explain the fundamentals of these methodologies, give examples of their practical applications, tutor the practical and interactive sessions, and moderate round table discussions on how to apply these methods to your own research. Examples of particular systems studied with the presented methods shall emphasize the intertwist between the four chosen hot topics in contemporary research. The complementarity of each of the hot topics with classical crystallography shall be discussed.
All participants of the workshop are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Crystals and receive a 20% discount on the article processing charge.
