Data Reduction for X-ray Serial Crystallography using Machine Learning

Data reduction for X-ray serial crystallography using machine learning

Image Source: Rahmani et al. (2023). J. Appl. Cryst. 56, 200-213.

In a paper at the Journal of Applied Crystallography, Vahid Rahmani et al, propose a pipeline to manage the large amounts of data that serial crystallography experiments produce. The pipeline would "differentiate reliably between acceptable data (hits) and unacceptable data (misses)" and would use machine learning to help classify the images produced. In addition, "a novel study of various feature extractors and machine learning classifiers is presented."

APS Upgrade Shutdown - Alternative Beamlines

APS Upgrade Shutdown - Find Alternative Beamlines

Are you a user of the APS (Advanced Photon Source) beamlines? As you know the beamlines at APS will be shutdown for an entire year to make way for upgrades. We can help you find an alternative beamline for your research as well as get you equipped to conduct your research there. Reach out to us and let us help you get up and running at an alternative beamline.
