Biochemistry Computational Research Facility (BCRF)

​The Biochemistry Computational Research Facility (BCRF) provides access to a computational computer cluster and hands-on tutorials.

Biophysics Instrumentation Facility (BIF)

​The Biophysics Instrumentation Facility provides access to state of the art instrumentation focused on the study of conformations, activities and assembly of biological and other macromolecules.  This facility is available to all researches and the public to allow access to instrumentation that might not otherwise be available on tight research budgets.

Biological Magnetic Resonance Data Bank (BMRB)

BMRB's mission is to collect, archive, and disseminate (worldwide in the public domain) the important quantitative data derived from NMR spectroscopic investigations of biological macromolecules. Through international collaborations and mirror sites, BMRB endeavors to involve the participation of a wider group of scientists and to enhance its services worldwide.

Cryo-Electron Microscopy Research Center (CEMRC)

The UW-Madison CEMRC is dedicated to providing instrumentation, technical assistance, training, and access to cryo-EM for the UW-Madison research community.

Crystallography Core (CCC)

The Collaborative Crystallography Core (CCC) is part of the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and is located in Rooms 2211, 2268 and 2305 on the 2nd floor of the Hector F. DeLuca Biochemical Sciences Building. The crystallography core provides instrumentation for setting up crystallization experiments and imaging the results. Expertise in construct design, protein production, crystallization, data collection and grand development is available.


The MediaLab supports programs and researchers with imagery from concept to reality. We offer modern design and media development for students, faculty and staff. We are available to other entities with proper funding.

National Magnetic Resonance Facility (NMRFAM)

The National Magnetic Resonance Facility at Madison (NMRFAM) is a Biomedical Technology Research Resource (BTRR), a National Institutes of Health (NIH) / National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS)-funded, shared instrumentation laboratory located at the University of Wisconsin-MadisonDepartment of Biochemistry.

Optical Core

The Biochemistry Optical Core (BOC) provides state-of-the-art instrumentation for super-resolution light microscopic imaging. Expertise and advice is available for the design of experiments involving these techniques; and for the development of grants and manuscripts involving super-resolution and standard light microscopic technologies.
