Understanding the function and structure of biomolecules is crucial in all areas of modern health and life sciences. Characterizing the structure and dynamics of these molecules is essential to understanding the basis of various cellular function, and the Biophysics Core at the Center for Structural Biology is to provide unimpeded access to state-of-the-art and well-maintained biophysics equipment.
The Biophysics Core, located in the Center for Structural Biology, offers three main categories of research and services: characterization of macromolecules using various biophysical instruments (SPR, ITC, DLS, CD & AUC), large-scale protein production, and macromolecular structural biology using X-ray crystallography and Cryo-EM in collaboration.
The Biophysics Core houses a suite of various biophysical instruments and has a fully equipped wet-laboratory for molecular cloning, recombinant protein expression, and protein purification. Large-scale protein purification service is also offered to users who need purified proteins for SPR, High-Throughput Screening (HTS), and structural biology.
