Crystallizations with microseeding
Use of crystal seed stocks in high-throughput crystallization screenings to improve the chances of crystal formation. Microseeds can be dispensed either during sitting drop or microbatch-under-oil setups.
A state-of-the-art single-photon counting X-ray detector and a new goniometer have been installed. The new set-up allows:
- In situ data collection
- In situ crystal characterisation
- Fast data collection and processing
- Serial crystallography
- Fragment screening for drug design
- Easy and efficient in-house phasing
- Small-molecule crystallography
- Powder diffraction
- New educational and training activities
AlphaFold2 protein structure predictions
We provide help and consultancy to run AlphaFold2 and to analyze/interpret the models (please see Modelling services)
How to acknowledge the use of the facility
Users are kindly asked to acknowledge the use of our facility.
“The use and expertise of Turku Bioscience Protein Structure and Chemistry Core Facility, a member of Biocenter Finland and FINStruct, is gratefully acknowledged.”
In addition, users should inform us (i) whenever publications have been accepted for publication/published (ii) of the PDB/CSD entry codes whenever structures have been deposited (iii) MSc and PhD theses whenever the facility has been used to obtain data for these theses.
