*Call for access to Synchrotron Beamline Facilities, 2017 - EMBL 
Hamburg, Germany*

We announce a call for synchrotron beam time applications in biological 
small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and macromolecular crystallography 
(MX) for the period April - December 2017. The following EMBL beamlines 
at PETRA III (DESY, Hamburg) are available: P12 (SAXS), P13 (MX), and 
P14 (MX).

Single proposals and BAG proposals are now being accepted for both 
methods, MX and SAXS. Groups applying for beamtime to work on several 
projects are strongly encouraged to submit a BAG (Block Allocation 
Group) proposal. The deadline for submission of proposals is *January 
23rd, 2017*, after which the proposals will be evaluated by an external 
Project Evaluation Committee. The users will be informed about the 
results of their application by March 13th, 2017.

A detailed description of the three beamlines and links to the 
electronic proposal forms can be found at:

SAXS: http://www.embl-hamburg.de/services/saxs/index.html
MX: http://www.embl-hamburg.de/services/mx/index.html

Submit a proposal via the EMBL Hamburg user portal 

Access to the EMBL Hamburg facilities also includes assistance with 
crystallisation, sample preparation and, in combination with an EMBL 
beamline visit, with sample characterisation and optimisation. Usage of 
the beamlines and biophysical facilities for translational research can 
in part be supported by the iNEXT project 
(http://www.inext-eu.org/access/), a Horizon 2020 programme of the 
European Union.
