After the XXVth ICMRBS conference at Lyon the CCPN team will offer a two day software training course for CcpNmr Analysis, aimed at the Solid State NMR community.
The tutorial aims to give the reader an introduction to using CcpNmr Analysis software (version 2.2 and above) for the analysis of magic angle spinning (MAS) solid state NMR spectra, although much of the material is also relevant for other NMR techniques which do not observe 1H resonances, such as 13C direct detection. This course aims to highlight some of the most relevant functionality for an MAS solid state project. The emphasis is on manipulating and assigning protein MAS spectra, although significant attention is paid to the isotope labelling strategies commonly employed in solid state samples. Notably we look at how knowledge of isotope labelling and chemical shifts can be used to create synthetic peak lists, which allow for the efficient interpretation of some spectra. Also, we will cover using through-space peak correlations and chemical shifts to make restraints that may be used to start a protein structure calculation.
Day 1, August 24: 1400-1730:
Introduction of CcpNmr Analysis
Day 2, August 25: 0930-1600:
Solid state NMR in Analysis
Computers will be provided, although you can bring your own if you prefer. If you do bring your own, please install Analysis 2.2.2 before coming. The maximum number of participants is 25.
The course will be held at the 7 Passage du Vercors, Lyon (location details here). Participation is free of charge. Participants must organize their own accommodation and meals; CCPN will only make arrangements for coffee and Saturday lunch.
