    Synchrotron Beam Time available for Macromolecular Crystallography
           at Berkeley Center for Structural Biology Beamlines
                 (5.0.1, 5.0.2, 5.0.3, 8.2.1 and 8.2.2).

 The ALS is now accepting General User applications for May/June

The Berkeley Center for Structural Biology (BCSB) operates five
beamlines at the Advanced Light Source in Berkeley. Beamlines 5.0.1,
5.0.2 and 5.0.3 are equipped with the Berkeley Automounter system.
Beamline 8.2.2. has a Rigaku Actor sample mounter capable of handling
Rigaku, unipucks and ALS style pucks.

Beamlines 5.0.2, 5.0.3, 8.2.1 and 8.2.2 have large 3x3 Q315 or Q315r
CCD detectors. Beamlines 5.0.2, 8.2.1 and 8.2.2. are MAD stations, whereas
5.0.3 and 5.0.1 are fixed energy beamlines at the Se high energy
remote, suitable
for Se-SAD experiments. The beamlines generate between 1.5x10^11 and 8x10^11
photons per second of flux into a 100 micron collimator at 1.5 mrad divergence.

and its beamlines.

If you'd like to apply for beamtime at these, or any other ALS
macromolecular crystallography beamlines, please submit a General
User proposal by March 15, 2008 in order to be considered for the
May-June schedules. To find out more, click on:

You can also request access to any open beam time on the five BCSB
beamlines by e-mailing our scheduler at SLOrtega at lbl.gov.

Any industrial or academic group interested in becoming part of the
Participating Research Team for beamlines 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 should contact
the Head of the BCSB (Paul Adams: PDAdams at lbl.gov, 510-486-4225).

(Please note that executed user agreements and proprietary fees, if
applicable, must be received at least five working days prior to
scheduled beam time.)
