The Berkeley Center for Structural Biology (BCSB) is pleased to
announce a new Collaborative Crystallography Pilot Program (CC) at the Advanced
Light Source in Berkeley. Through this program, scientists are able to send
protein crystals to BCSB staff researchers for data collection and analysis.
The CC Pilot Program provides a number of benefits to researchers:
* Obtain high quality data and analysis through collaboration with
expert beamline researchers;
* Rapid turn around on projects;
* Reduced travel costs.
CC proposals go through the regular ALS General User proposal review
process. They are reviewed and ranked by the Proposal Study Panel, and
beamtime is allocated accordingly. BCSB staff schedule the projects to fit into the
available resources. Please note that only non-proprietary projects
are currently being accepted. In keeping with similar programs the BCSB staff
researchers who participate in data collection and/or analysis should be appropriately
acknowledged as authors on publications and/or PDB depositions.
Please consult the website for additional information at:
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 Mai/June, 2008, proposals must be submitted by March 15, 2007.
