There will be time available for macromolecular crystallographic
investigations on several NSLS beamlines during winter 2001, beginning
about 20 January.  There is also the possibility of courier-based
service (FedEx Data).

CCD-Based detection systems, as well as sufficient computing power
that all data can be reduced on site (and often structures can be
solved on site as well) are available on all of these beamlines.

If you are interested, see "TO APPLY" below.  Please access the web site:
http://www.x12c.nsls.bnl.gov/x12c/nsls_px.html for information about the
beamlines.  One also can apply from that web site.  All who are not U.S.
citizens should please read about the new "indices" checks (form IA-473)
that must be made before a visit to BNL:
http://nslsweb.nsls.bnl.gov/nsls/users/procedures/foreign.htm

A Research Resource Grant from the National Institutes of Health is
providing enhanced support for users to the NSLS.  Work is being done
under this grant to extending the state of the art in macromolecular
crystallography in both computing hardware and software, use of modern
detectors, application of multi-layer monochromators to provide hotter
beams, and multiple-beam phasing of protein structures.

TO APPLY FOR RAPID ACCESS BEAMTIME:

Please fill out this web-based form, then send e-mail to Bob Sweet
(sweet at bnl.gov) describing your needs.  State clearly if you are
interested in FedEx Data collection.

Note:
  In the "Date of visit" blank put "Rapid Access."  
  In the Safety form blank put N/A.

Later you will be asked to fill out this form, which requires a short
abstract of the scientific goals of the work.
