Semi-annual rate update (2023-06-27)

Rates were updated as part of a campus-wide initiative to regularize rates.

The Collaborative Crystallography Core is open for users (2021-06-02)

New and returning users are asked to complete a User Agreement, check their funding source string, and provide their lab’s biosafety protocol before keycard access is restored.

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 grant development is available.

Our Goals:

  • Enhance research by providing access to state-of-the-art crystallomics equipment.
  • Provide training in all aspects of structure determination by diffraction techniques.
  • Facilitate access to synchrotron light sources, such as the Life Sciences Collaborative Access Team (LS-CAT) at the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Lab.
  • Connect research groups with structural information by allowing engagement by any member of the research community at UW-Madison, regional Universities, and industrial partners.
