X-Ray Crystallography Core Facility

X-Ray Crystallography Core Services

Crystallization Screening: For macromolecular crystallization experiments, the core facility uses commercially available 960 crystallization conditions plus various optimization reagents whose combination can make millions of different crystallization conditions.

Data Collection Service: Diffraction experiments will be performed at in-house X-ray facility as well as a synchrotron beam lines.

Structure Determination and Analysis: A complete data set collected at home or synchrotron will be processed for inorganic, organic, protein or nucleic acid structure determination, model building and crystallographic refinement.

Other Structural Biology Related Services: The core facility offers thorough analysis of a macromolecular structure or a group of structures for publication or grant applications. The core also provides computational experiments such as homology modeling and in silico ligand docking.
