Title PXDB - Protein Crystallography Database System at Brookhaven National Lab
Abstract The PXDB, our Postgres-based user-management and experiment tracking database system, is a relational database system devised to provide experimenters with the ability to capture information related to macromolecular crystallography data collection at the NSLS. It also provides users with tools to manage, view, annotate, and track information related to their beamtime requests (either in person or Mail-In), projects, visits, crystals, and actual data collection (sweeps) taken. The Sweep page includes all information logged during data collection from each crystal. This often includes several sweeps for X-ray diffraction screening, finding the optimal crystal orientation for single-crystal spectroscopy, links to the data collection journal files in HTML format with crystals in the loop, JPEG images of X-ray diffraction patterns, all plots from the excitation scan for MAD data collections, and summary tools for preliminary spectroscopic analysis that can be of use for decision-making while at the beamline.
