SGX signs agreement to build state-of the-art beamlines at advanced photon source

First commercially-owned beamline devoted to high-throughput crystallography

Argonne, IL, and San Diego, CA, July 26, 2000 -- Structural GenomiX (SGX) signed a memorandum of understanding today with the Advanced Photon Source (APS) at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Argonne National Laboratory near Chicago. The signing clears the way for SGX to initiate construction of a dual undulator beamline facility there. This SGX-funded facility, which will be ready for use in 2001, will provide the biotechnology company with access to intense X-rays beams from the DOE-funded synchrotron radiation source.

"Today's agreement is recognition that the Department of Energy's world class facilities are essential to advancing the next phase of genomics research," said Secretary of Energy Bill Richardson, who attended the signing. "By making the Energy Department's Advanced Photon Source available to the private sector we are helping to speed the development of new pharmaceuticals to benefit the entire Nation. This follows up on President Clinton's recent call for increased public-private cooperation in biotechnology and genomics research."

The San Diego-based Structural GenomiX is developing a high throughput X-ray crystallography platform to solve the structures of potential drug targets. The SGX facility at the APS will have the first commercially-owned and operated beamlines in the world devoted to high-throughput X-ray crystallography. When completed, this facility will be the most advanced of its kind, providing the capacity to outstrip the current annual world-wide production of protein structures. The company will use the X-rays focused by the beamline to produce images of thousands of proteins and potential drug targets with atomic-level precision.

The Advanced Photon Source is a national synchrotron radiation research facility located at Argonne National Laboratory near Chicago, Illinois. It is currently the most brilliant source o
