International School on iological ¢rystallization* The Laboratorio de Estudios Cristalogrficos announces the third International School on Biological Crystallization to be held in Granada from May 22 to 27, 2011 The aim of the school is to introduce participants, postgraduate/postdoctoral students and research scientists from industry and Academy, to fundamental knowledge on the behaviour ‘of crystallizing solutions and its applications in the fields of biomacromolecule aencation. biominerals and biomimetic materials. As in the previous edition one day will be fully devoted to case a ie on the erystalization of membrane proteins, viruses an cromolecular com /www.isbegranada.org http.
