Major Instrumentation & Resources within Biochemistry & Wake Forest School of Medicine

The Department of Biochemistry has state of the art resources to support our ongoing research efforts.  We have a number of core labs that provide support for investigation of fundamental biological processes.  We have an in house X-ray facility complemented by the high-field NMR capabilities in the department for macromolecular structure determination. Molecular graphics and modeling are also provided through a network of UNIX-based computing facilities. Professionally-staffed facilities for protein analysis, peptide and oligonucleotide synthesis, and mass spectrometry are available within the Protein Analysis Core Laboratory and the Mass Spectrometer Facility. Core facilities for surface plasmon resonance, rapid reaction kinetics, time-resolved fluorescence, circular dichroism spectroscopy, dynamic light scattering, and analytical ultracentrifugation have also been established in the Molecular Partners Core Laboratory to meet the needs of investigators.
