Collaboratory for X-ray Crystallography, Crystallization and Protein Engineering
From Clone to Structure
The Center for Structural Biology (CSB) is a comprehensive structural biology resource for researchers at the University of Michigan and surrounding areas.
The center includes:
- High-Throughput Protein Laboratory for protein engineering
- Protein Purification Facilities for small- and large-scale protein production
- Macromolecular Crystallization & Crystallography Laboratories for solving crystal structures of biological molecules
- X-ray facility with access to high energy synchrotron radiation
Staff scientists in the center collaborate or consult with researchers who use the facilities. The center has a programmatic collaboration with the Center for Chemical Genomics (CCG) in which structures can be determined of target proteins in complex with compounds identified in high-throughput screens in the CCG.
