The SER-CAT Organization
SER-CAT (Southeast Regional Collaborative Access Team) is
an organization of mainly southern universities and the NIH intramural research
group that built and now maintains a facility for collecting X-ray diffraction
data from crystals of biological macromolecules at the Advanced Photon Source (APS),
Argonne National Laboratory. The
Direct use of the SER-CAT beamlines (and subsequent analysis of the data) requires extensive training in crystallography. Access for groups without crystallography experience is through collaboration with crystallographers on or off campus. Groups that have hired postdoctoral fellows with adequate crystallography experience are also eligible for time. Available time is approximately 144 hours per year for each of two beamlines. The time on the lines is split into three runs per year, with 48 hours per run.
Inquiries regarding use of the SER-CAT facility should be directed to:
David Rodgers, Assistant Professor
Department of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry
