The investigation of protein crystal structures by high-resolution powder X-ray diffraction is being established as a complementary tool to recognized single-crystal techniques.

When suitable crystals are not available, a microcrystalline powder can give basic information about the crystal lattice, symmetry and crystallinity. Recently it has been demonstrated that structure solution of small proteins can be successful using powder data via traditional and/or novel approaches. The 2-day workshop will cover topics such as sample preparation, data-collection, strategies for data analysis, and structure validation, etc. for powders.
