MacCHESS/Cornell University.............................................. 321

 

MacCHESS (Macromolecular X-ray science at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source) provides a facility where scientists can use both established and emerging technologies to pursue the goals of the biomedical research community. Work performed at MacCHESS, using tools including crystallography and small-angle X-ray scattering, yields important insights into fundamental biological processes, such as signaling across membranes, regulation of ion channels in neuronal function, enzyme catalysis, and gene expression. MacCHESS supports several beamlines, on either a full-time or part-time basis. These are generally configured for either macromolecular crystallography or biological small-angle scattering. F1 beamline, with its well-collimated monochromatic beam and Pilatus3 6M detector, is well suited for large complexes. Tuned above the selenium absorption edge, it can yield excellent SAD data when selenium is present. G1 is a high-flux multilayer BioSAXS station with rock solid beam stability, short exposures and high throughput. Data are automatically collected from two Pilatus detectors simultaneously (SAXS/WAXS), so that merged data cover a q range of 0.006 0.7 Å-1. In-lineSEC-SAXS-MALS-DLS has proven to be a powerful tool for resolving difficult aggregation and separation problems. G3 station has recently been the focus of development of serial microcrystallography, due to its extremely powerful beam which results from use of a multilayer monochromator followed by focusing.Users interested in protein crystallography and/or BioSAXS experiments may apply for time using the on-line CHESS application process.
