Dear Users,

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 egular 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 
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
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 July/August, 2008, proposals must be submitted
by May 15, 2008. The deadline for CC proposals for the time period September/October 2008 is July 15, 2008.
