X6A had its first workbench for the year 2012. Here is a quote from one of the participants "We all got the data. Currently we are looking through the images to see which conditions we will try and optimize. I also wanted to say thanks for screening the crystals and showing me how to use the automounter. I learned a lot at the workbench. I thought you would want to know that the previous resolution of the crystals that diffracted to 1.5 angstroms was 2.96. So we made that project champion very happy"- Matt K.
