High pressure effects on biomolecules are emerging as an exciting area that has important implications for evolution, much of the life on our planet, as well as having practical technological applications.
The workshop, as part of the 2019 CHESS Users Meeting, is designed to provide a broad introduction to the effects and implications of high pressure methods in biological science. Speakers will introduce high-pressure bioscience as it relates to molecular biophysics, the evolution of life, food science and the instrumentation required to perform high-pressure biological experiments, especially as pertains to the determination of molecular structure. The workshop will include a tour of CHESS and a short overview of data acquisition at BioSAXS.
