The X-ray Crystallography Facility is a Yale University School of Medicine core facility. The purpose of the X-ray crystallography core facility is to provide equipment, training, assistance, and technological innovations for determining three-dimensional structures of proteins and other macromolecules. The facility is dedicated to X-ray diffraction and crystallographic studies and utilizes state of the art technology to understand the structural basis for biological function. Potential users should meet with facility staff to discuss their individual projects.
Consultations or collaborations on macromolecular crystallization, X-ray characterization of crystals, processing and quality analysis of data, structure determination, molecular modeling, molecular docking and structure visualization, and analysis are also available. The core also provides a resource for training, education and consultation in X-ray crystallography techniques.
