The “Facilities Integrating Collaborations for User Science” (FICUS) call between the Joint Genome Institute (JGI) and the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) represents a unique opportunity for researchers to combine the power of genomics and molecular characterization in one proposed research project. Both user facilities play critical roles in supporting Department of Energy (DOE) energy, environment and basic research missions.
Successful applications will focus on high risk/high payoff projects in the focused topic areas that can be completed on an accelerated timeline. In addition, they must utilize a broad range of the capabilities of each facility, and generate datasets beyond what each of these facilities could generate by itself. Accepted projects must address or be aligned with DOE/BER (Biological and Environmental Research) missions, but proof of concept for the demonstration of a technology that would be applicable to a DOE mission is appropriate.
This webinar will discuss the latest FICUS resource - the Biological Small Angle Neutron Scattering (BioSANS) instrument available at Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Center for Structural Molecular Biology.
