[ccp4bb] British Crystallographic Association Spring Meeting. Apr 6th - 9th. Leeds



The British Crystallographic Association Spring Meeting is to be held at the University of Leeds on 6-9th April 2020, with a Young Crystallographers satellite meeting on 6-7th April, and registration is open now.


The programme of Biological Structures Group sessions are summarised below.  The original abstract deadline has passed, but if you'd like to attend the meeting and you have work to present that would fit within one of the BSG oral sessions, we would encourage you to submit an abstract here. If you would like to submit an abstract, either for an oral presentation or a poster, please do so as soon as possible.
