Dear Users,

 The deadline for May/June 2010 Collaborative
 Crystallography proposals will be *Mar 15, 2010. *
 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 (7) "Do you want collaborative crystallography
     (beamline 5.0.1 or 5.0.2 only)
  * In question 4, please describe a specific research project with  a clear end point.

 In order to request CC time for May/June 2010 allocation period,
  proposals must be submitted by *March 15, 2010.*

 The deadline for CC proposals for the time period July/August  2010 will be May 15, 2010.
