Dear Users,

/Deadline for March/April 2009  proposals will be Jan 15, 2009.

Through the Collaborative Crystallography Pilot Program  (CC) at the 
Advanced Light Source, scientists can send protein crystals
 to Berkeley Center for Structural biology (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
  depositions. Please consult the website for additional information at:

please describe a specific research project with a clear end point. In 
order to request CC time for March/April 2009
allocation period, proposals must be submitted by January 15, 2009. The 
deadline for CC proposals for the time period
 May/June 2009 will be March 15, 2009.
