  • You'll find SBGrid in ~350 structural biology labs located at over 100 different institutions in about 20 countries around the world. See full map and read more in eLIFE.

  • In traditional X-ray crystallography, X-rays bombard 1 crystal 100s of times. This syringe, developed for a dynamic temperature experiment in James Fraser's lab at UCSF, shoots 1,000s of crystals into an X-ray-free electron laser beam, one at a time. Learn more.

  • Daniel Panne's group, which relocated in 2018 to the University of Leicester, looks at the language of gene regulation and visualizes the catalytic core of p300. Read the full story.

  • Tom Rapoport's group at Harvard Medical School captured the crystal structure of the active translocon being pushed through the hourglass-shaped SecY protein-conducting channel. You can find out more about the science and learn some personal history in our Member Tale.

  • The first high-resolution (2.8 Å) X-ray crystal structure of the transcription initiation complex of Mycobacterium smegmatis, from the laboratory of Seth Darst at Rockefeller University.
