BioXFEL is committed to sharing and building our knowledge base with the scientific community, industry and our society to advance science. In our partnership with the National Science Foundation, we strive to find effective and creative mechanisms to transfer the results of BioXFEL's research, technology and educational programs. We collaborate with industry partners, government agencies, venture capitalists, foundations, museums, and the community.
Resources from the official BioXFEL youtube channel. This channel's mission is to broaden the scientific community’s exposure to the development of new techniques for observing molecular machines. It features lectures, seminars and journal presentations from the students.
OnDA Solution Scattering enables real-time analysis of solution scattering data at XFELs.
BioXFEL researchers are pioneering new methods of sample delivery, nano crystallization, and other technologies. We have patented several of our key developments to enable our industrial partners to access these technologies.
Serial crystallography is a rapidly growing field with a correspondingly rapidly growing user base. One of the main bottlenecks in serial crystallography is the ability to rapidly filter and analyze large datasets to arrive at accurate structure factors for structure solution and refinement.
LCP injectors offer advantages over liquid injectors in areas including sample consumption and native crystallization environment for membrane proteins. These viscous jets are now regularly used by several groups within and outside of BioXFEL for serial femtosecond crystallography at XFELs.
BioXFEL member and undergraduate researcher, Fiacre Kabayiza, has created a game to help educate school-aged students on the topic of XFEL science. Employing a simple, yet engaging, tap-based gameplay and a time-proven minimal 8-bit graphical art style, he delivers a game that introduces tweens and teens to XFELs, structure determination, and the structure and function of 3 different protein.
BioXFEL recently unveiled an installation at the Buffalo Museum of Science. It is located within the exhibit “Our Marvelous Earth”. Visitors can explore the world of crystallography through an interactive kiosk featuring a quiz, XFEL Crystal Blaster game, and hands-on laser experiment.
