Minisymposium on Ambient pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy at MAX IV
On Monday, 30 May 2016, a minisymposium on “Ambient pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy at MAX IV” was held at the MAX IV Laboratory. The minisymposium had the aim to provide an opportunity to discuss the status of the SPECIES and HIPPIE beamlines at MAX IV as well as current and future science with Ambient pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (APXPS). Please find the programme of the minisymposium below. Presentations available to us will soon be published here.
We would like to thank all speakers for their excellent contributions – due to these contributions the Ambient pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy became a very inspiring and successful event!

Scientists unlock secrets of cell-surface receptor activation creating opportunities to engineer plant-microbe interactions
In a study combining structural biology, biochemical and genetic approaches, scientists showed that plant cell-surface receptors employ a mechanism for error correction responsible for the control of receptor activation and signaling select bacterial symbionts. This demonstration opens the door to potentially manipulating such receptors’ binding sites in legumes and other organisms in the future. Cell-surface
