Researchers in the Department of Structural Biology employ a range of structural and biophysical methods in their research. We have cutting edge NMR and cryo-EM facilities as well as powerful computational systems.

Cryo-Electron Microscopy (Cryo-EM)

Cryo-EM is a biophysical technique that we use to determine the structure of biological macromolecules, assemblies, and cellular structures.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy

NMR spectroscopy is a versatile tool that we use for probing structure, dynamics, folding, and interactions at atomic resolution.

Computational Systems

Structural biology produces data sets that require powerful and specialized computer systems for analysis.
