Project Details


Our aim is to establish an x-ray crystallography facility to enhance the productivity of structural biology in the
greater Sydney region. The facility will increase the speed and success rate for protein structure determination.
The facility will produce protein crystals, optimize them for x-ray diffraction quality, determine initial structures prior
to ultimate data collection at the Australian Synchrotron for maximal resolution. The resulting protein structures
will enhance research in molecular and cell biology, synthetic biology and chemistry, biochemistry and the design
of inhibitors for biotechnology and biopharmaceuticals.
