Protein Structure X-Ray Lab

The Protein Structure Laboratory provides investigators with state-of-the-art instrumentation, facilities, and expertise for protein crystallization, X-ray data collection, data analysis, and structure solution and refinement from an a la carte menu. Laboratory staff provide advice and consultation, training, access to facilities for experienced crystallographers, and a range of services from crystal growth to full structure solution and refinement.

  • Crystallization of an investigator’s target proteins
  • Collection of complete X-ray diffraction data sets locally and at synchrotron
  • Phase determination (experimentally or through molecular replacement)
  • Model building and refinement of structures deduced from diffraction data
  • High throughput crystallography with protein-ligand complexes
  • Publications and grant applications involving X-ray crystallographic issues
