The goal of the NYSBC Cryo-electron microscopy (CEM) 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.
