    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.
