Structural Biology Facility

SBF logo

Welcome to the Structural Biology Facility!

We specialise in the research into the structures of proteins and other large macromolecules with a strong focus on the technique of X-ray crystallography.

We are located in the Biosciences North D26 building.

 

About us and contact details

 

We host a number of instruments to assist in determining the structural features of macro-molecules.

Our facility has three key research areas:

Robotic Crystallography Suite

allowing the high through-put preparation of crystallisation trays using a number of liquid handlers and robotic imaging.

X-ray diffraction

for the study of single macromolecular crystals.

Biophysical Analysis

of proteins including protein folding, secondary structure, chemical stability

 

So, if you are new to structural biology and want to find out about your favourite protein or are a seasoned X-ray protein crystallographer we have infrastructure that could help. Please contact us for a tour (see About us for details on using the facility).

Come and do a virtual tour of the facility!
