 The TOPIQ series of webinars will feature short presentations on a variety of topics related to X-ray fluorescence spectrometry, X-ray diffraction, and protein and small molecule X-ray crystallography, and include programs focusing on different applications and techniques. The series will offer presentations on several different subjects throughout the coming months.
