Integrative Structural and Computational Biology

Structural and computational biology are continuously evolving with significant advances, particularly in cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), X-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technology.

Such advances in technologies, methodologies, and accelerated throughput are enabling rapid determination of structures of important biological molecules and complex assemblies of molecules. Molecular structures that only a few years ago seemed impossible to decipher are now being solved with remarkable regularity by scientists at UF Scripps, empowering rational design of potential drugs and biological therapeutics.
