Call for access to Synchrotron Beamline Facilities 2011 

                          EMBL Hamburg, Germany

We announce a call for synchrotron beam time applications in biological
small-angle scattering (SAXS) and X-ray crystallography (PX). Up to 32 weeks
of beam time will be available at the DORIS storage ring  at the synchrotron
DESY from March 2011 to February 2012.

On the DORIS storage ring, EMBL Hamburg will operate the beamlines in SAXS
(responsible scientist Dmitri Svergun) and PX (responsible scientist Victor

Electronic beam proposal forms and a detailed description of the DORIS
beamlines will be available from January, 15th, 2011 at www.embl-hamburg.de
(click on 'Access to Infrastructures'). The deadline for submission of
proposals is January, 31st, 2011. An external Priorities Committee will
assess the proposals.

EMBL is constructing three new beamlines for applications in PX and SAXS at
the Petra-III synchrotron storage ring, which are expected to become
available in 2011-2012 (responsible scientist Thomas Schneider).
