Structural Biology Center
Phone: (630) 252-3926
The Structural Biology Center (SBC) is a national user facility for macromolecular crystallography at the Advanced Photon source. The facility uses advanced instrumentation , state-of-the-art software and methods and high throughput technologies. SBC is capable of addressing the most challenging projects in structural biology that include: large macromolecular assemblies (ribosomes, viruses, regulatory protein/DNA complexes), membrane-bound and membrane-associated proteins (ion channels, receptors, integrins). Structures of enzymes and complexes with ligands and inhibitors can be determined at atomic resolution.
SBC receives support from the U. S. Department of Energy, Office of Biological and Environmental Research
