Protein Structure (X-ray) Laboratory

About the Lab


The Structural Biology Center (SBC), shown above,
houses the COBRE's Protein Structure (X-ray) Laboratory,
the Protein Production Laboratory, the BioNMR Laboratory,
and related laboratories of KU's Molecular Structures Group.

The mission of the Protein Structure Laboratory (PSL) is to provide investigators with state-of-the-art instrumentation, facilities, and expertise for protein crystallization, X-ray data collection, data analysis, and structure solution and refinement from an a la carte menu.

Laboratory staff provide advice and consultation, training, access to facilities for experienced crystallographers, and a range of services from crystal growth to full structure solution and refinement. The PSL is located in close proximity to other core service labs in the KU Structural Biology Center.
