The Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) is revealing biological structures in unprecedented atomic detail, helping to model proteins that play a key role in many biological functions. The results could help in designing new life-saving drugs. This project analyzes in real time the throughput of data generated by the next generation free-electron lasers. Higher throughput allows the examination of the time-resolved behavior of dynamic reactions triggered by optical pulses, chemical mixing, or temperature jump.
