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. The Transgenic Mouse Core Facility provides investigators access to state-of-the-art technologies for the generation of genetically-engineered mouse lines. 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 and DNA sequence analysis, peptide and oligonucleotide synthesis, GC- and tandem mass spectrometry and high-resolution NMR spectrometry are available within the department and institution. Core facilities for rapid reaction kinetics and spectroscopy, time-resolved fluorescence, circular dichroism spectroscopy, analytical imaging, dynamic light scattering, and analytical ultracentrifugation have also been established to meet the needs of investigators. A nationally- recognized facility for electron microscopy is also housed within the institution.
