IMPORTANT NEWS:
The GCPCC beamline at CAMD is back on line.   The new multipole wiggler that produces the x-rays for the beamline has been installed in the ring and passed all tests. The beamline has been relocated 90 deg. around the ring to use the new more powerful x-ray source.
We are delighted to announce that we have received funding from the Louisiana Board of Regents for installing a crystal-mounting robot.

Beamline Update:

We are now scheduling users for access to the beamline. Prospective users can contact us via e-mail at hbellamy[at]lsu[dot]edu or call Henry Bellamy at (225) 578- 9342.

We continue to offer mail-in crystallography to both consortium members and outside users.      

Operation Schedule:

CAMD operates 14 hours a day when delivering user beam, 8 am to 10pm. The ring is shutdown on Saturdays and Sundays.  The schedule consists of 8 days of  user time followed by 2 days for machine studies and maintenance.  To view the scheduled operation of the synchrotron, please visit CAMD's beamline schedule web page.

 

 

Overview:

The Gulf Coast Protein Crystallography Consortium (GCPCC) consists of eight universities in Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana.  The consortium's goal is to foster cross-disciplinary research and education in the field of protein crystallography.  A major part of meeting this goal is the GCPCC protein crystallography beamline operated at the CAMD synchrotron at LSU.  This beamline began user operation in 2003 and has quickly become a valuable tool in research and education for the scientific community.
