BioCARS Zoom Seminar Series
We started BioCARS Zoom Seminar Series in August of 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic. We felt that during that time when most of our users could not travel to BioCARS, it was essential to continue communications and scientific discussions. The goal was to share developments at our facility and our user science. We included topics related to BioCARS experiments and results, both in time-resolved crystallography and X-ray solution scattering. But also, more broadly, we also welcomed any general topics of interest to time-resolved X-ray science communities. As this Seminar Series proved to be important and popular, we plan to continue it. Please let us know if you are interested to present your work. Also, please forward this information to your colleagues who might be interested. We provide the list of past seminar presentations on this web page.
Recorded presentations, when available, can be found on BioCARS YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe to get updates when new videos are added!
