Ilse Katz Institute for Nanoscale Science & Technology
The Macromolecular Crystallography Research Center (MCRC) is located at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.
The main goal of the MCRC is to provide support for laboratories within the Department of Life Science and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev who are interested in structural information as part of their research goals. A three dimensional structure provides internal details of the protein and may provide information helpful in deciphering the structure/function relationship of the macromolecule under consideration. One of the most effective and widespread technique for structure determination of macromoloecules is X-ray Crystallography, which requires high-quality crystals.
