Scientific field: Life

This field includes any research at BESSY II that is related to living organisms or biological structures. A major part of the field life is the protein structure determination done at the MX beamlines (MX: Macromolecular Crystallography). But also biophysical effects of smaller molecules and biotechnology belong into this field.

Please find here a list of instruments at BESSY II which your colleagues chose to perform research in the field "Life".
