General Lab Information

CBMS Workbenches (Cycle 3)


The CBMS workbenches on Solution Scattering (SAXS/WAXS) and Macromolecular Crystallography (MX) span four 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.

Focus will be on data collection methodology and techniques; only a short introduction to the methods will be provided. Attendees are encouraged to send their own samples. The aim of the CBMS workbenches is to provide to members of the community the opportunity 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 SAXS workbench is scheduled in the mornings of each day while the MX workbench takes place in the afternoons. SAXS data collection usually takes place in the afternoon, while MX data collection takes place all day during the second day of the workshop. Exceptions can be made for those participants registered in both workshops. Early registration is highly recommended for those interested in sending their own samples (see the sample TAB).
