There will be about 50 days of beam time available for macromolecular
crystallographic investigations on several NSLS beamlines during Fall
2001, beginning about 1 September.  If you are interested, please access
the web site: http://www.px.nsls.bnl.gov and follow the pointer to Rapid
Access. 

One can find information about the beamlines from this web site.  There is
also the possibility of courier-based (FedEx) data collection. 

Also, 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:

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.
