Preliminary  Announcement

Recent advances in free-electron laser technology have demonstrated the ability to collect millions of "snap-shot" hard X-ray diffraction patterns from single bio-particles (e.g. viruses, cells) or hydrated protein nanocrystals. Other modes, such as Laue diffraction, fast (correlation) SAXS,  and  pump-probe experiments aimed at observing protein dynamics are also under development*.

The aim of this small workshop is to determine what opportunities the invention of the FEL offers to biologists.
