Dear Users,

The deadline for October/November/December 2009 Collaborative 
Crystallography proposals will be *November 15, 2009. *
Through the Collaborative Crystallography Program  (CC) at the 
Advanced Light Source (ALS), scientists can send protein crystals 
to Berkeley Center for Structural Biology (BCSB) staff researchers 
for data collection and analysis. The CC Program can provide a 
number of benefits to researchers:

   * Obtain high quality data and analysis through collaborating with expert beamline
   * Rapid turn around on projects; and
   * Reduced travel costs.

To apply, please submit  a proposal through the ALS General User 
proposal review process for beamtime allocation. Proposals are 
reviewed and ranked by the Proposal Study Panel, and beamtime is 
 allocated accordingly. BCSB staff schedule the CC projects on 
Beamlines 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 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:

To submit a proposal, go to:  http://alsusweb.lbl.gov/. Scroll 
down to "*Structural Biology beamlines (includes protein SAXS)*" 
 and click on "New Proposal."  Enter your proposal information, with 
 attention to the following details:

 * For question 3/First choice, select "5.0.1 
   (Monochromatic);" for question 3/Second choice, select "5.0.2 (MAD)."
 * Check box (yes) in response to question "Do you want collaborative crystallography 
    (beamline 5.0.1 or 5.0.2 only)
 * In question 9, please describe a specific research project with  a clear end point.

In order to request CC time for October/November/December 2009 
allocation period, proposals must be submitted by *November 15, 2009.*

The deadline for CC proposals for the time period March/April  2010 will be January 15, 2010.
