What is Biostruct-X?

BioStruct-X is a project funded by the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission that establishes a state‐of‐the‐art coordinated and multi‐site infrastructure to support access for established and emerging key methods in structural biology. Eleven facilities from across Europe provide 44 installations for applications in small angle X‐ray scattering (SAXS), macromolecular X‐ray crystallography (MX) biological X ray imaging (XI) protein production and high throughput crystallisation (PP & HTX).

The aim of BioStruct-X is to provide a consolidated platform that brings together all relevant methods in structural biology. Read more
