Malcolm Capel and Frank Murphy will be speaking at "Current and Future Trends in Macromolecular Crystallography Experiments." This workshop is hosted by NSLS-II and will be held virtually March 16-18, 2021. The workshop will be from 12pm - 6pm EST each day.
Malcolm will be speaking in Session I (March 16, 2021). His talk is entitled, "New endstations at NE-CAT: MD3UP microdiffractometer and 30 puck ALS-style loader."
Zoom-based office hours to answer questions regarding using NE-CAT, data processing, structure solution or anything else x-ray crystallography-related available weekly.
Thursday, 1:00 - 3:00 PM Central Time

Structural work on SARS-CoV-2 papain-like protease, SARS-CoV-2-PLpro, required for processing viral polyproteins to generate a functional replicase complex and enable viral spread has been featured as a highlight on the APS website.
On February 18, 2020, in support of the COVID-19 outbreak, NE-CAT provided rapid access beamtime to researchers from the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research working on the the SARS-CoV-2 S glycoprotein receptor-binding-domain. The novel coronavirus's surface Spike (S) glycoprotein mediates cell entry via the human ACE-2 receptor, and is the principal target for the development of vaccines and immunotherapeutics.
Rapid Access Beamtime is available for all research projects related to COVID-19.
