The deadline for applications for the NSLS's Fall 2003 cycle is the end of
the NSLS working day (5PM EDT) on Monday 2 June 2003. There is also
Rapid-Access time available beginning about 20 May.
There is an electronic submission form required. Please access the web
site: http://www.px.nsls.bnl.gov/ for information about the beamlines, and
forms and instructions for the submission of beam-time proposals and for
Rapid Access. The deadline is very firm for regular submission. Read all
of the instructions carefully and submit early.
Eight beamlines are available for macromolecular crystallographic data
collection through the NSLS General User Program: Beamlines X12-B, X12-C,
X26-C, X8-C, X9-A, X6-A, and X4-A, plus the wiggler beamline X25. Two new
ADSC Q315 diffractometer systems have been installed at X25
(http://www.px.nsls.bnl.gov/x25_info.html) and X12-B to provide
unprecedented data-collection power.
>>> This represents a huge amount of beam time, including many <<<
>>> days on X25, one of the most usable beamlines 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.
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 extend 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.
