Mission of the core is to provide investigators state-of-the-art equipment and resources for crystallographic analysis of their target macromolecules and small inorganic or organic molecules. The core facility offers and operates as a full service core by performing crystallization, X-ray diffraction data collection (both in-house and synchrotron sources) processing, phasing, crystallographic refinement, model building, and visualization. The structural data obtained by the core will provide scientists with a wealth of information including but not limited to biological functions, 3D-folding, ligand binding (small molecule or protein), or mutational effect of target macromolecules.
Outside users are always welcome! We also provide crystallography services to outside organizations. Please contact us for potential collaborations.
