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.
Abbas Ourmazd, a UWM distinguished professor of physics, has been appointed to serve on the Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee (BESAC) of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
The X-ray Laser Interactive Network Colloquia (XLINC) Series comprises three main activities: the BioXFEL Journal Club, the BioXFEL Online Lecture Series and BioXFEL sponsored Workshops.
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.
As an affiliate you can join our group for annual conferences, be involved in and aware of the advances in our programs and play a key role in making our research successful. We work with companies to translate what we have learned in the lab to the private sector.
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.
The NSF BioXFEL STC has partnered with museums to grow public knowledge and understanding of XFEL science. Our collaborative programs reach students, educators and the general public. Through our combined efforts we offer lectures, workshops and soon, a rotating exhibit.
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.
