CCDC Workshop: Using the CSD to go from data to discoveries
Tuesday 22 August (8 am – 4 pm)
How to deposit into and search the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) and how to use crystallographic data from over a million structures to gain new insights for your research.
We will show you how to search the CSD using ConQuest, with advanced tips and tricks, and how to perform an in-depth geometry assessment of your structures using the functionality in our visualization and analysis software Mercury. We will introduce you to components in Mercury to perform sophisticated solid state analysis, and intermolecular interactions, and crystal packing assessment to investigate structural stability. We will also guide you through the deposition process to upload your structure in the CSD, including enhancement steps to ensure your structure will be at its best for the rest of the community to learn from it. On the way, expect hints and tips on how to create stunning and effective images for your presentations and publications! You will try the functionality yourself with hands-on exercises.
Online and free tools for crystallographic symmetry handling and visualization
Monday 21 August (8 am – 6 pm) and Tuesday 22 August (8 am – 12 pm)
This workshop will be co-presented by Ilaria Gimondi, CCDC Education and Outreach Coordinator, and developers from other organizations.
The workshop is intended for crystallographers, chemists, physicists, and materials scientists using crystallographic symmetry tools for structural analysis and/or visualization.
