This film was recorded at the International Crystallography Conference, 1965, Melbourne, Australia, by the CSIRO Film Unit in collaboration with the Australian Academy of Science. If you are at all interested in the history of crystallography, and of science in general, I think you will find this video to be 15 well spent minutes.
This film was made possible with support from UNESCO, the International Council of Scientific Unions, the Australian Academy of Science, the International Union of Crystallography, the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics, the International Atomic Energy Agency and the University of Melbourne.
Are you looking to apply your skills in Integrative Structural Biology to the development of new approaches to explore organization of functional bacterial chromosome? The SIBYLS Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow in the field of Integrative Structural Biology. For more details on the position, please see the pdf document below….
SIBYLS has installed new robotics that halve the time it takes to collect a full 96-well plate, from approximately 5 hours to 2.5 hours per plate (with the potential to collect a plate in 10 minutes over the coming year). We believe this will be a game changer for many reasons. We will be able to accommodate more users per week, enable new screening methods, and have more time to offer SEC-coupled SAXS and time resolved SAXS. In addition to the new robotics, we have improved instruments for higher data quality. Our new monitor of transmitted beam intensity should greatly reduce buffer subtraction errors. We have also replaced the windows for lower background. In completing these upgrades, the stage is now set for increased sample to detector distance providing access to lower q (an upgrade that will occur sometime during the summer).
