The Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (SSRL), a division of SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, provides extremely bright X-rays that can be used to investigate the structures of biological macromolecules.  As part of the Center for High-Throughput Structural Biology collaboration, SSRL's Structural Molecular Biology (SMB) group is working closely with researchers at the Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute (HWI) on technology developments related to crystalline sample preparation, automated sample screening for diffraction quality, and remote access data collection.  The SSRL SMB group operates six beam lines (BL1-5, BL7-1, BL9-1, BL9-2, BL11-1, and BL11-3) for macromolecular crystallography experiments.  Additionally, a new undulator station optimized for microcrystal data collection, BL12-2, is being commissioned.
