Facilities

BCRF LogoBiochemistry Computational Research Facility (BCRF)

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


BIF LogoBiophysics 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.


BMRB LogoBiological 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.


Center for Eukaryotic Structural Genomics (CESG)

CESG LogoThe Center for Eukaryotic Structural Genomics (CESG) is a collaborative effort to elucidate the three-dimensional structure of many of the proteins encoded by the Arabidopsis thaliana genome. Starting with characterized cDNA clones, recombinant protein is produced and subsequently purified. The three dimensional structure of the proteins is then determined via either X-ray crystallography or nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). All solved structures are promptly placed in public databases including the Protein Data Bank (PDB) and BioMagResBank (BMRB).


NMRFAM InstrumentNational 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.


Biochemistry Optical Core logoOptical 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.
