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 42 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 – creating a single gateway to Europe’s leading European synchrotron facilities and associated infrastructures, ultimately to the benefit of the overall user community.

BioStruct-X cooperates with the ESRFI project Instruct (Integrated Structural Biology Infrastructure for Europe) in aiming to provide an integrated and coordinated technology platform to all relevant methods in structural biology.
