Current Research in Structural Biology
Research report (imported) 2013 - Max Planck Institute of Biophysics
The Department elucidates the structure and function of membrane proteins as well as macromolecular protein complexes by using electron microscopy, x-ray crystallography, biochemical and biophysical methods. It consists of a group lead by director Werner Kühlbrandt and project groups operated by Janet Vonck and Özkan Yildiz. Thomas Meier and Daniel Rhinow run two independent research groups. Christine Ziegler, now appointed as professor at the University of Regensburg, is still associated with the Department. Here, we present current data and results from all over the Department’s research.
