The goal of the New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC) cryoelectron microscopy facility is to help researchers elucidate the intermolecular interactions and domain architectures of macromolecules within their native cellular assemblies. Towards this goal, the facility has brought together a combination of instrumentation and staff expertise that supports the determination three-dimensional structures. The NYSBC is also a member of TEMIMPS, the Transcontinental EM Initiative for Membrane Protein Structure.
The NYSBC provides instrumentation facilities for structural biology research to member institutions in New York State. The Center has two facilities, the main facility in Manhattan and a crystallography facility at the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) at Brookhaven National Laboratories (BNL) on Long Island.
