SEA COAST Crystallographic Workshop 2024 @KMUTT, Bangkok, Thailand (Jan 29–Feb 7, 2024); Application is now open!

After a long pause caused by Covid-19, we are pleased to announce that we are renewing our macromolecular crystallographic school “South-East Asian Crystallographic Overview And Systematic Training” (SEA COAST 2024) in KMUTT, Bangkok, Thailand from Jan 29-Feb 7, 2024.

The workshop is organized jointly by KMUTT, Dr. Ronan Keegan CCP4 (UK), Dr.Garib Murshudov from MRC-LMB (UK) and Dr.Ruslan Sanishvili from  Crystallographic Education and Research Assistance, (USA). Leading experts from around the world will be giving lectures and tutorials in the workshop!

COURSE LECTURES: The workshop will highlight an overview of macromolecular crystallography and all aspects of the structure solution process:

  • Crystallization
  • Data collection theory
  • Data processing
  • Phasing
  • Refinement
  • Model quality
  • Validation and PDB deposition of the structural data
  • Molecular graphics and bioinformatics topics.

In addition, SEA COAST 2024 will cover lectures on Cryo EM and Neutron Diffraction as well.



HANDS-ON PROBLEM-SOLVING: The participants are welcome and encouraged to bring their own crystallographic data to the workshop to work on unresolved challenges under the guidance of some of the world’s best experts. 

HIGHLIGHT of SEA COAST 2024: An opportunity to collect crystallographic data at Diamond Light Source (DLS), UK.*

ELIGIBLE APPLICANTS: The course is designed for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and more established young scientists both from academia and industry. 

On-line application is now open until December 15, 2023.

The SEA COAST committee will select 30 applicants to participate in the workshop.

The selected applicants will be responsible for registration fees.

The selection results will be announced on December 22, 2023

* Applicants, who are planning to collect data from their crystals at the Diamond Light Source, should contact Dr. Sanishvili at immediately for important details.
