The Structural Biology group operates a world leading suite of synchrotron radiation beamlines dedicated to the study of biological macromolecules:

  • two highly intense, tunable beamlines (ID23-1 and ID30B)
  • a unique beamline for fully automatic data collection MASSIF-1 (ID30A-1)
  • two microfocus / minibeam beamlines dedicated to protein crystallography (ID23-2 and MASSIF-3 (ID30A-3))
  • a protein solution scattering beamline (BM29)
  • a cryo-EM microscope (CM01)
  • The MX and BioSAXS beamlines are operated joinly with the EMBL through the Joint Structural Biology Group (JSBG) agreement.
  • CM01 is operated as a PSB platform and jointly run by scientists form ESRF, EMBL, IBS and ILL.
