>> Do You Have your Beamtime for Next Winter?? <<
The deadline for applications for the NSLS's fall 2000 cycle is the
end of the NSLS working day on Monday 2 October 2000.
Six beamlines are available for macromolecular crystallographic data
collection through the NSLS General User Program: Beamlines X12-B, X12-C,
X26-C, X8-C, and X4-A, plus the wiggler beamline X25.
>>> This represents over 180 days of beam time, 30 of it on X25, <<<
>>> arguably the most usable beamline anywhere for PX. <<<
CCD-Based detection systems, as well as sufficient computing power that
all data can be reduced on site (and often structures can be solved on
site as well) are available on all of these beamlines.
>> There is an electronic submission form required. <<
Please access the web site: http://www.x12c.nsls.bnl.gov/x12c/nsls_px.html
for information about the beamlines, and forms and instructions for the
submission of beam-time proposals. The deadline is very firm. Read the
all of the instructions carefully and submit early.
Also, all who are not U.S. citizens should please read on the NSLS web
page the announcement about the new "indices" checks (form IA-473)
that must be made before a visit to BNL: http://www.nsls.bnl.gov/
A Research Resource Grant from the National Institutes of Health is
providing enhanced support for users to the NSLS. Work is being done
under this grant to extending the state of the art in macromolecular
crystallography in both computing hardware and software, use of modern
detectors, application of multi-layer monochromators to provide hotter
beams, and multiple-beam phasing of protein structures.
