ALS-ENABLE beamlines played a huge role in the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded to Jennifer Doudna and Emmanuelle Chapentier. Through analysis of data collected at ALS Enable beamlines, Jennifer… Read more
ALS-ENABLE scientist, Jay Nix at the MBC beamline 4.2.2 participated in the structure solution for a recently published paper in Cell, Circulating SARS-CoV-2 spike N439K variants maintain fitness while evading… Read more
ALS-ENABLE beamlines use multiscale, multimodal visualization techniques to clarify how proteins remodel bacterial DNA in response to stressful environments. At the mesoscale, small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS) at Beamline 12.3.1 made… Read more
A huge congratulations to the team of Doudna and Charpentier who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry this year for the development of a new method of genome editing, namely, the much used CRISPR system. Dounda did much of her early structural work on this system using several of the ALS-ENABLE beamlines (though at the time these beamlines were not banded together under the ALS-ENABLE umbrella). We are very proud! Here is a link to a list of publications resulting from work at our beamlines.
