Workshop: 2nd Northern Lights on Food Masterclass 2021

21-11-15 - 21-11-19 All day

From the event website: Structural properties of food are multi-dimensional and we therefore need to understand their structure at various length and time scales. They control storage qualities, uptake and nutritional value as well as texture and perception. Key challenges for food scientist and product developers in academia and food industry concerns the whole production, from raw material quality, starting with seed quality and plant breeding, to food processing and the final product. The quality of the product is also determined by packaging and how the food interacts with packaging during storage and consumer handling.

Techniques available at Large-Scale Research Infrastructure MAX IV Laboratory and the European Spallation Source, ESS, include spectroscopic, imaging and scattering techniques based on either X-rays or neutrons. These techniques allow us to obtain detailed compositional maps of food materials and obtain structural information ranging from the atomic, nano- to the micrometer scale not only of the final products, but also during processing and when the food product is digested.

    From the event website: The Membrane Protein Working Group is dedicated to explore the unique challenges involved in research on the structural biology of membrane proteins. In our first online workshop in May 2021, we discussed several aspects of expression systems, protein purification, membrane solubilization and other preparation methods. Our winter workshop is the continuation to further explore topics related to the “Structural Resolution of Membrane Proteins: From Sample Preparation to Structural Resolution”.

    The production of high-quality membrane protein crystals is always very challenging so we continue to cover more topics like multi-protein complexes, detergent trials and crystallization strategies such as LCP and Hi-LIDE. We will also invite scientists to introduce their best practices on Cryo-EM or neutron structures, scattering techniques, and data collection and processing.
