Title: Fluctuation Scattering: Saxs at the Femtosecond Timescale
When: 03/28/2013 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Description: Physical Biosciences Division researcher Peter Zwart discusses fluctuation scattering on Thursday, March 28, at noon in the Building 50 Auditorium. Solution scattering provides insights into the structure and dynamics of macromolecules in solution. X-ray free-electron lasers open up new avenues in solution scattering and provide data with more information than that obtained by traditional X-ray sources. Zwart is the science lead for the Berkeley Center for Structural Biology, with a doctorate from the University of Amsterdam for work performed at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory. Research interests include synchrotron crystallography, free electron laser sciences, and computational biophysics.
