EMBL Opens Crystallization Facility in Hamburg

NEW YORK, Nov. 17 (GenomeWeb News) - The European Molecular Biology Laboratory opened a high-throughput crystallization facility today in Hamburg, Germany, for research in structural biology, EMBL said today.


It will combine technological advances to transform proteins into crystals to automate protein analysis. The facility can run 10,000 experiments each day, and 1 million experiments can be stored and imaged, EMBL said. After an initial test phase, the facility will serve researchers across Europe.


Located at EMBL's Outstation on the German Synchrotron Radiation Facility campus, it is funded in part by the German Ministry for Science and Education.
