X-Ray Crystallography

X-ray crystallography is the principal technique used to determine three-dimensional structures of biological macromolecules. The central goal of the UNC Crystallography Core Facility is to provide the support and infrastructure necessary to enable individual investigators of any experience level to initiate and successfully complete a structural biology project.

The facility is state of the art, offering a variety of services in these three areas:

crystals lyso-diffraction density-gray
Crystallization X-Ray Diffraction
Data Collection
Structure Determination
and Refinement

The primary mission of the MX Facility is to work with researchers here at UNC, however, we are also able to work with researchers at non-UNC academic institutions and commercial companies.
