Biomolecular Crystallography Facility

New User Information

Access to the facility by new users may be gained through the online CSB Outreach form. This format has the benefit of bringing all the resources of the CSB to bear on the initial phases of structural projects and can make a significant impact on the likelihood of success in the shortest possible time.

The Director of Operations for Crystallography is always available to discuss the applications of crystallography to any research project.

Information for New Crystallographers

The facility is available for training and support for researchers with no previous crystallography training. This is currently done on an individual basis. Anyone considering taking up crystallography should be committed to spending several months learning the techniques. However, this can be accomplished in segments as the project develops. The segments, listed in order, are; crystallization, data collection and reduction, phasing techniques, model refinement, structure analysis, and PDB deposition.
