Synchrotron Beamlines at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory Outstation in Hamburg

  • Keith S. Wilson
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (BLSC, volume 51)


The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) outstation was set up in 1974 to apply synchrotron radiation (SR) to problems in molecular biology. The facilities have been developed by a staff too large to be given full credit here. The capabilities for biological structure research at the outstation are given in Table 1. The purpose of this brief report is to outline the present beamlines at the outstation. The beamlines are used for in-house research by the groups in the outstation and by many outside visitors. Over 50 projects are studied by visiting groups in a typical year.
