  1. DENSS: Ab Initio Electron Density Maps from Biological SAXS Data

    20 Mar 2019 | Seminars | Contributor(s): Thomas Grant

    Small angle scattering is an experimental technique used to analyze the molecular structures of a wide variety of biological and non-biological samples in solution. In contrast to X-ray crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy, where 3D electron density maps are calculated, available methods …

  2. Crystallography with an XFEL

    21 Jul 2015 | Seminars | Contributor(s): Marc Messerschmidt

    Dr. Marc Messerschmidt discusses the design and operation of the X-ray free electron laser at the LCLS. Be sure to grab the attached MP3 audio file to follow along. Topics discussed include: - XFEL fundamentals - LCLS machine capabilities and energy spectrum - Beamlines and instrumentation for …

  3. Tabletop source for intense hard X-rays: toward a compact XFEL

    28 Oct 2014 | Seminars

    Dr. William Graves ASU Biophysics Seminar Series Today x-ray science is pursued either at major facilities housed in national labs, where the large synchrotrons and x-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs) produce an x-ray brilliance of at least 1020 photons/(sec mm2 mrad2 0.1%), or else it is pursued …

  4. Microfluidic Platforms for Bimolecular and Nanocrystal Separation

    23 Sep 2014 | Seminars | Contributor(s): Alexandra Ros

    Dr. Alexandra Ros Analytical and bioanalytical applications of microfluidic devices or so called Lab-on-a-Chip Systems have been an extensive field of research over the past two decades. In many instances, integration of (bio)chemical analyses onto microfluidic platforms has been inspired by …

  5. Introduction to XFELs in Structural Biology

    03 Jun 2014 | Seminars | Contributor(s): Edward Snell

    Dr. Edward Snell gives a brief overview of how X-ray free electron lasers work and how they can be used to investigate structural aspects of biological systems never before accessible to experiment.

  6. Intro to Structural Biology

    02 Jun 2014 | Seminars | Contributor(s): Dan Gewirth

    Dr. Dan Gewirth of the Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute gives a brief overview of structural biology and its importance as a tool to understanding biological processes. Be sure to grab the MP3 audio file to follow along with the PowerPoint slides.
