MX1 and MX2 are X-ray beamlines in  the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) dedicated to diffraction studies of single crystals of biological macromolecules such as proteins and their complexes with small molecules and nucleic acids. These experiments permit the elucidation of three-dimensional structures, contributing to  a better understanding of biological processes at atomic levels.
