Structural Biology. First BioMAX operation results

Purpose and scope:

The purpose of this full day parallel session/workshop is to share first scientific results from the BioMAX beamtime by our user community. This workshop will create a forum to discuss the experiences and the results using BioMAX as well as to have an future outlook of the beamline developments and user requests too.
