The National Institutes of Health center on the SLAC campus will make this revolutionary technology available to scientists nationwide and teach them how to use it to study 3D structures of biological machines and molecules.
The new facility provides revolutionary tools for exploring tiny biological machines, from viral particles to the interior of the cell.
With SLAC’s X-ray laser, scientists captured a virus changing shape and rearranging its genome to invade a cell.
Join us for five days of ultrafast science from April 17 to 21.
Creating a molecular snapshot of the way proteins interact could help development of new cancer drugs.
New insights into how bacteria interact with host cells could help fight off harmful microbes.
A tiny change in the length of a chemical bond makes a big difference in the activity of a molecule important in health, drug development and chemical synthesis
Using SLAC's X-ray laser, researchers have for the first time directly observed myoglobin move within quadrillionths of a second after a bond breaks and the protein releases a gas molecule.
Graham George and Ingrid Pickering, a husband and wife X-ray research team, are co-leading a new study in Bangladesh to test whether selenium supplements can protect people from arsenic poisoning.
Scientists have revealed never-before-seen details of how our brain sends rapid-fire messages between its cells using SLAC's X-ray laser.
