General Lab Information


The CBMS Structural Biology workbench includes Solution Scattering (SAXS/WAXS), X-ray Foot Printing (XFP) and Macromolecular Crystallography (MX). The workshop spans over four days of in-person training classes aimed at researchers that would like to know more about techniques and methods available to scientists at BNL's Center for Biomolecular Structure (CBMS) structural biology beamlines. The aim of the CBMS workbenches is to provide training to members of the community and an opportunity to collect preliminary data to support future beamtime proposals within the CBMS Structural Biology beamlines.

Our focus will be on data collection methodology and techniques for an overview, see our agenda. In-person attendees are encouraged to bring their own samples. Interested participants are invited to register for one or both of the following workbenches: Biomolecular Solutions Scattering and Macromolecular Crystallography.

The CBMS Structural Biology Workbench is an in-person workshop. Eligible participants must have an active BNL Guest Appointment to attend. To apply for a BNL Guest Appointment, participants must complete an additional Brookhaven Lab Guest Form and be approved in the BNL Guest Information System (GIS) by August 31, 2024.
