PSI MX Samples Symposium

WHGA/001 (PSI)



Paul Scherrer Institut, Forschungsstrasse 111, 5232 PSI-Villigen, Switzerland
John Henry Beale (PSI - Paul Scherrer Institut)

The purpose of this symposium is create a forum to discuss different experiences with MX data collection methods from the point of view of the sample. The symposium will bring together scientists from both the facility and laboratory side to talk about current problems and future developments with regard to MX samples. The subject of the talks will not focus on biology questions, but rather the methods, triumphs, and disasters associated with modern MX techniques.

The principal focus of the symposium will be towards conducting serial crystallography experiments at the SLS and SwissFEL.

At the end, there will be some time for a joint discussion to reflect upon the talks and communicate some ideas for the future.
