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 September/
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.
Beamlines 5.0.2, 5.0.3, 8.2.1 and 8.2.2 have large 3x3 Q315 or Q315r
CCD detectors. The beamlines generate between 1.5x10^11 and 8x10^11
photons per second of flux into a 100 micron collimator. Please visit

If you'd like to apply for beamtime at these, or any other ALS
macromolecular crystallography beamlines, please submit a General
User proposal by July 15, 2007 in order to be considered for the
September-October 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@...
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
