Quality assessment of biologics: higher order structure analysis using NMR

27 July 2018 | By Bruker

The webinar describes how 2D NMR can offer protein biochemists unprecedented analytical precision. By assigning just one spectrum, users can obtain a unique fingerprint of a protein at an atomistic resolution. This non-destructive technique can also be combined with other complimentary techniques to gain even further insights into sample quality.…

Crystallography: A Core Science?

29 October 2014 | By

Crystallography is the science underpinning crystallisation, as well as a basic understanding of atomic arrangement within solids and their resulting structures. The United Nations announced that 2014 would be the International Year of Crystallography (IYCr2014). IYCr2014 commemorates the 100th anniversary of X-ray diffraction according to Bragg’s Law (celebrated by the…

Protein crystallography in drug design: current bottlenecks

21 September 2007 | By Timothy Allison & Sanjeev Munshi, Department of Structural Biology, Merck, Westpoint, PA

Protein crystallography is an integral component of the structure-guided drug discovery process. Rapid access to structural information about drug targets as well as bound ligands has been pivotal in accelerating lead identification and optimisation processes...

Automated classification of crystallisation images

23 May 2007 | By Julie Wilson, York Structural Biology Laboratory, Department of Chemistry, University of Heslington, York, UK

The findings of many crystallisation experiments are required in order to identify conditions that will produce diffraction quality crystals. The use of robots has increased the number of experiments performed in most laboratories and, in structural genomics centres, tens of thousands of experiments can be produced every day. As each…

Streamlining with automation and robotics

28 September 2006 | By Bart Hazes, Dept. of Medical Microbiology & Immunology, University of Alberta and Bernhard Rupp, q.e.d. life science discoveries, inc.

Protein crystallography has been embraced by the pharmaceutical industry to accelerate and rationalise the drug development process. In this role, success rates, throughput and turnaround times have become key competitive factors, and nearly every stage in the protein crystallography process has been targeted for automation using robotics and advanced software.…

Structural genomics, the practical way

20 July 2006 | By Frank von Delft, Principle Investigator, Protein Crystallography Group, Structural Genomics Consortium, University of Oxford

The Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC) is an internationally funded collaboration with sites in three countries and a three-year goal of solving the 3-dimensional structures of more than 380 human proteins with particular medical relevance, and placing them in the public domain without restrictions. The structures should prove an invaluable resource…

Science through cooperation

23 May 2006 | By EPR

Protein crystallography has a key role to play in a project that is making a significant contribution to understanding human diseases. The Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC) has already achieved one landmark, and looks set to continue in a similar vein. Tim Lloyd spoke with Alexey Bochkarev Ph.D., Principal Investigator, Crystallography,…
