A big welcome to Chem Cryst to our new cohort of Part II students for 2017/18: Kiaora Tolmie, Lewis Morgan, Gwenno Jones, Han Xu, James Bird and Oli Bar! And welcome back to one of last year’s Part II students, George Sackman, as he starts his D.Phil. studies.
The triennial congress of the International Union of Crystallography was held in Hyderabad over 8 days in August 2017.
During the meeting Richard Cooper presented recent work with Jerome Wicker:
Optimizing co-crystal screens using a data-driven machine learning method
We also took an opportunity to present recent developments in the CRYSTALS software at the IUCr parallel programme Software Fayre:
Advanced restraints in CRYSTALS
Prior to the IUCr meeting, Richard Cooper was a tutor at the Crystallographic Computing School at IISc in Bangalore, organised by the IUCr Commission on Crystallographic Computing, and gave a lecture:
Recent advances in small molecule refinement
