PRINCIPAL NIH RESEARCH RESOURCE X RAY BEAMLINE AT NSLS: WIGGLER BEAMLINE X25

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

For several years X25 arguably has been the most sought-after
beamline in the United States. The fact that macromolecular
crystallographic measurements have competed so well recently for
access to this facility speaks to the importance of the likely result,
and the quality of preparations made by the experimenters. However,
partially because the users who win time on the beamline have been
from the most experienced groups in the U.S., and partially because
there has been too little personnel available for teaching and
supervision of visitors, the beamline has run in a relatively
primitive mode for PX: substandard detectors, software that does not
go beyond simple operations, and little assistance from experienced
crystallographers beyond initial training in operation of the
beamline. Therefore, we will embark on this technological development
project to establish apparatus, software, and methods that not only
will enhance our ability to make measurements that are impossible on
NSLS dip ole bearrilines, but also will make absolutely the most
efficient use of this precious resource. To some extent, projects 1.
1 and 1.2 are a part of this - development of software and hardware.
X25 becomes the focus point where all of these developments must come
together to achieve the highest goals and to solve the most difficult
biological problems.
