General Lab Information


The BioMolecular Solution Scattering (SAXS/WAXS) and Macromolecular Crystallography (MX) workbenches span three days of virtual training classes aimed at researchers that would like to know more about forefront techniques and methods available to scientists at BNL’s Center for Biomolecular Structure (CBMS) structural biology beamlines.

A short introduction to the methods will be provided, while focus will be on data collection methodology and techniques. Time will be provided for collection and analysis of data. Attendees are encouraged to send their own samples. One of the objectives of the CBMS workbenches is to provide the opportunity for members of the community to obtain preliminary data that can be used to request beam time at the CBMS Structural Biology beamlines.

Interested participants are invited to register for one or both of the following workbenches: Biomolecular Solutions Scattering and Macromolecular Crystallography. The Solution Scattering workbench is scheduled in the mornings of each day while the Macromolecular Crystallography workbench takes place in the afternoons. Solution scattering data collection usually takes place in the afternoon, but exceptions can be made for those participating in both workshops. Early registration is recommended for those interested in sending their own samples.
