The Berkeley Center for Structural Biology (BCSB) is pleased to
announce the launch of a Collaborative Crystallography Pilot Program
(CC) at the Advanced Light Source in Berkeley. Through this program,
scientists will be able to send protein crystals to BCSB staff
researchers for data collection and analysis. The CC Pilot Program
can provide an number of benefits to researchers:
* Obtain high quality data and analysis through collaborating with
expert beamline researchers;
* Rapid turn around on projects;
* Reduced travel costs.
The Collaborative Crystallography program will be piloted on
beamlines 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 for one year; if successful it will be
implemented on a permanent basis. CC proposals will go through the
regular ALS General User proposal review process for beamtime
allocation. Proposals will be reviewed and ranked by the Proposal
Study Panel, and beamtime will be allocated accordingly. BCSB staff
will schedule the projects to fit into the available resources.
Only non-proprietary projects will be accepted. As a condition of
participation, BCSB staff researchers who participate in data
collection and/or analysis must be appropriately acknowledged -
typically being included as authors on publications and in PDB

How To Apply:
To submit a proposal, go to:
For question 3 select "Collaborative PX 501/502." For question 9,
please describe a specific research project with a clear end point.
In order to request CC time for January/February, 2008, proposals
must be submitted by November 15, 2007.
