Structure and Function of Membrane Proteins
Research report (imported) 2010 - Max Planck Institute of Biophysics
The research of the Department of Structural Biology focuses on understanding the structural basis of membrane transport and biological energy conversion at the highest possible level of detail. The main methods are crystallography of membrane protein crystals (2D and 3D), single-particle cryo-EM and electron cryo-tomography (cryo-ET) of biological membranes. With few exceptions, all membrane proteins for crystallography, as well as membranes or organelles for tomography are produced within the group.
