  • X-ray crystallography is the gold standard for determining biological structures at high resolution. Protein crystals are subjected to X-ray radiation, and the pattern of diffraction obtained is used to solve the structure of the molecule. X-ray crystallography thus provides vital information about structure-function relationships and protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions. The Macromolecular Crystallography Research Centre (MCRC) provides expert services needed for determining the three-dimensional structure of a protein. These services begin with protein crystallization and can continue through to crystal measurement and three-dimensional structural analysis. The MCRC also offers advanced robotics instrumentation to facilitate mass screening and imaging.
