Structural Analysis are the most popular services offered by Instruct-ERIC. These include Electron Microscopy, Magnetic Resonance techniques and X ray approaches.
NMR allows three-dimensional structural and dynamic information to be obtained in conditions as close as possible to physiological ones. Functional processes can be followed in living cells, and transient protein-protein interactions can be investigated.
Instruct-ERIC offer a wide range of X ray approaches to determine the three dimensional shape of proteins at the atomic level.
The high-resolution electron microscope has evolved into a sophisticated instrument that is capable of routinely providing quantitative structural information on the atomic scale.
