11/30 PDB101 News

The 70th Annual Meeting of the American Crystallographic Association was held from August 2-7, 2020, virtually. An issue of Structural Dynamics contains articles submitted by authors participating in the annual transactions symposium which focused on new ways to teach the next generation of structural scientists.

Articles include:

  • Teaching a large-scale crystallography school with Zoom Webinar (Joseph D. Ferrara, Amanda Cochran, Mark Del Campo, Christian R. Göb, Pierre Le Maguerès, Mathias Meyer, Horst Puschmann, Christian Schürmann, Alexandra Stanley, Paul N. Swepston, Akhilesh Tripathi, Fraser White and Jakub Wojciechowski)
  • Molecular storytelling for online structural biology outreach and education (David S. Goodsell, Shuchismita Dutta, Maria Voigt and Christine Zardecki)
  • A science education model for large collaborative centers (William J. Bauer and Sarah B. Woodruff)
  • Inviting others to life in reciprocal space (Cora Lind)
  • X-ray Lite: A 1-credit pass/fail crystallography course (Carla Slebodnick)
  • Developing a macromolecular crystallography driven CURE (Krystle J. McLaughlin)
  • Transactions from the 70th Annual Meeting of the American Crystallographic Association: Structural Science—New Ways to Teach the Next Generation (Joseph Tanski, Christine Zardecki, Andrey Yakovenko and Cassandra Eagle)
