The biology of human diseases and disorders is highly complex. In many cases, despite a great deal of detailed structural knowledge, understanding mechanisms is still a long way off.

BioSAXS works to uncover cellular machinery involved in regulation of DNA transcription

MacCHESS runs ACA course on small angle scattering

Macchess Icon

The workshop was held at the 2015 Philadelphia ACA meeting and drew 46 participants. All students were provided with lunch, a set of printed course notes, and a memory stick containing course notes, tutorial data, and other useful material.

Workshop on fast framing detectors and time-resolved x-ray biology

Macchess Icon

MacCHESS post-doc TK Chua seeks to understand the operation of enzymes that operate on gases, such as carbonic anhydrase and nitric oxide synthase, by applying the pressure-cryocooling technique to trap gas molecules in their active sites.
