Welcome to the world of biological and chemical structures as seen by X-ray crystallography
The group continues a long historic association between Manchester and X-ray crystallography, that started with W.L. Bragg.
Our interests include:
Naturally we have access to the facilities of the Chemistry Department
, Manchester Computing and the rest of the University.
The synchrotron radiation source at Daresbury is within an hour's drive but
we also use several other sources.
We are a Marie Curie training site.
- Synchrotron radiation and its use in ultiwavelength
high resolution and dynamic studies.
- Laue, both X-Ray and Neutron.
- Enzyme structure and reactivity.
- Lectins (protein saccharide interactions).
- Liquid crystal phthalocyanines.
