Research reveals that the bacterial immune system can better destroy viral attackers by saving genetic records of previously encountered viruses.
Scientists have assembled an exotic toolbox for experiments that tap into the brightest X-rays on the planet.
Research performed in part at SLAC has provided new insights into how "TH proteins" couple two important processes needed to maintain healthy cells.
A scientist at Germany’s DESY lab who participated in pioneering studies at SLAC's LCLS has been awarded a scientific prize by a research foundation.
Researchers captured the highest-resolution snapshots ever taken with an X-ray laser that show changes in a protein’s structure over time.
Scientists at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory are combining the speed and precision of robots with one of the brightest X-ray lasers on the planet for pioneering studies of proteins important to biology and drug discovery.
A new experimental station in development at SLAC will expand capabilities for atomic-scale explorations in human health, biology, energy and environmental science.
Researchers have discovered that some common messenger molecules in human cells double as hormones when joined to a protein that interacts with DNA.
SSRL protein crystallography expert joined research effort that could lead to a safe and effective alternative to chemotherapy.
Scientists have for the first time mapped the atomic structure of a protein within a living cell. The technique, which peered into cells with an X-ray laser, could allow scientists to explore some components of living cells as never before.
