Macromolecular Crystallography

To apply for 2022 beamtime, submit a proposal via the EMBL user portal. The application deadline is Monday 18 October 2021 (midnight CET). Rapid access is available for COVID-19-related proposals and can be requested by contacting the user office.

Users can access our beamlines P13, P14, and the T-REXX endstation on P14

EMBL Hamburg operates two beamlines for macromolecular X-ray crystallography, P13 and P14, at the PETRA III storage ring at DESY (Hamburg, Germany) coordinated by Thomas R. Schneider. On P14, a second end-station “T-REXX” for pump-probe time-resolved crystallography is in operation since October 2018.

Appyling for beamtime

Access to the EMBL Hamburg beamlines is available to all research groups, and is prioritised on scientific grounds only. Project proposals for beamline access are evaluated by the Project Evaluation Committee. Users are invited to apply for beamline access by submitting a proposal to the EMBL Hamburg submission system SMIS.
