What We Do
Research in the Department of Structural Biology is aimed at achieving a comprehensive understanding of structure/function relationships and of dynamic aspects of key cellular components and processes, using a variety of experimental and theoretical tools. Structures of biological macromolecules and their complexes are investigated at atomic resolution by X-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance. Imaging techniques, including single-molecule microscopy, cryo-electron tomography and Atomic Force Microscopy, are used to span the range between single molecules to large macromolecular assemblies and cellular organization.
