Overview

Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Henry Chapman and Professor John Spence

Event details

The recent invention of the hard X-ray laser (XFEL) has opened new vistas for structural and dynamic biology. This meeting will review the latest work, outline opportunities for future research, and describe the new techniques (snapshot SAXS, serial nanocrystallography, single-particle imaging) which take advantage of the atomic spatial resolution and femtosecond time resolution of the XFEL.

Biographies of the organisers and speakers are available. Recorded audio of the presentations are available on this page and the papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions B.
