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.

Thumbnail Description:

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  
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 January/February, 2008, proposals  
must be submitted by November 15, 2007.
