Diamond Light Source, Oxfordshire, UK

The Diamond Light Source Macromolecular Crystallography group would like to invite our users to a User Day on the 11th May and BAG training sessions on 12th May.

The User Day on the 11th May will be discussion based covering the current status of the MX beamlines and software, future developments (including modes of access) as well as including introductions to other biological facilities at Diamond. It is hoped that this event will be a useful forum for dialogue between users and staff.
The BAG training day on the 12th May will be open to two members from each BAG only and will involve hand-on sessions on the suite of five operational MX beamlines. Other sessions relating to sample handling, data analysis and use of ancillary beamline equipment will also be run. The two attendees of this training day should be coordinated by the BAG responsible.
The number of attendees for the User Day is limited to 110 and priority will be given in the first instance to those attending the BAG training day and then on a first come first serve basis thereafter.
Accommodation will be provided overnight on the 11th May for attendees of the following days BAG training session.
