The Berkeley Center for Structural Biology (BCSB) is pleased to 
announce a new Collaborative Crystallography Pilot Program (CC) at the Advanced 
Light Source in Berkeley. Through this program, scientists are able to send 
protein crystals to BCSB staff researchers for data collection and analysis. 
The CC Pilot Program provides a number of benefits to researchers:

    * Obtain high quality data and analysis through collaboration with
      expert beamline researchers;
    * Rapid turn around on projects;
    * Reduced travel costs.

CC proposals go through the regular ALS General User proposal review 
process. They are reviewed and ranked by the Proposal Study Panel, and 
beamtime is allocated accordingly. BCSB staff schedule the projects to fit into the
available resources. Please note that only non-proprietary projects 
are currently being accepted. In keeping with similar programs the BCSB staff 
researchers who participate in data collection and/or analysis should be appropriately
acknowledged as authors on publications and/or PDB depositions.

Please consult the website for additional information at:


How To Apply:

To submit a proposal, go to:


For question 3 select "Collaborative PX 501/502." For question 9, 
please describe a specific research project with a clear end point. In order to 
request CC time for Mai/June, 2008, proposals must be submitted by March 15, 2007.
