Containerized Serial Crystallography “CrystFEL” VISA workflow https://pan-training.eu/materials/containerized-serial-crystallography-crystfel-visa-workflow Experiments generate up to 150 TB per day of data saved at the measurement facility. Such large datasets are impractical for users to take home. Subsequent analysis needs to be performed remotely making it attractive for deployment as a cloud-like use case. Involving EOSC in the analysis and re-use of this data is an appropriate use case. Serial crystallography is a beam-line technique for collecting information on the structure of a protein without growing large protein crystals. Instead, a large number of small protein crystals are held in a pulsed X-ray beam. In a second step, the series of produced images are used to reconstruct a precise 3-D image of the protein structure. Serial crystallography is the preferred technique for obtaining diffraction data of proteins at room temperature, where radiation damage from the X-ray beam starts rapidly. The standard software for analysing serial crystallography is “CrystFEL”. The proposed workflow was rendered in a standard fashion, which would allow it to be easily adopted by arbitrary systems or also other containerized applications. The only requirements are an Apptainer installation on the system and a Docker or Singularity/Apptainer image of the application, as well as an adjustment of the configuration file for the wrapper script. crystallography CrystFEL, Serial crystallography, pulsed X-ray beam, VISA research data scientist scientific
