June 2019: Multi-Technique Proposal now available
The new proposal mechanism in this current pilot phase covers the techniques of small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), macromolecular crystallography (MC) and cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) available at SSRL. It is intended to expand the techniques covered by these proposals in its permanent phase to also include techniques available at LCLS as well as spectroscopy and imaging techniques available at SSRL. For more information please see the announcement on the SSRL webpage.
February 2019: New Multi-Technique Proposal Mechanism (Pilot)
A new Multi-Technique Proposal mechanism has been created for projects that require the use of two or more scientific techniques available at SSRL (both x-ray and electron based). The pilot proposal mechanism will initially cover Small Angle X-ray Scattering, Macromolecular Crystallography and Cryo-Electron Microscopy. A goal is to expand the mechanism in its permanent phase to include additional techniques available at LCLS and spectroscopy and imaging methods at SSRL.
The new pilot proposals will require a thorough justification for the requirement of using two or more techniques. The proposals will be reviewed by an ad hoc Proposal Review Panel comprised of members from the SSRL SMB and Cryo-EM PRPs. The new proposal template will be available June 1 and the first deadline for submission will be July 1 (Note: this is a different submission deadline than the one for regular BioSAXS proposals).
