The Center for Structural Molecular Biology at ORNL is dedicated to developing instrumentation and methods for determining the 3-dimensional structures of proteins, nucleic acids (DNA/RNA) and their higher order complexes.
Area of Research
The Center for Molecular Biophysics has existed since 2006 with support from Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee. We perform research at the interface of biological, environmental, physical, computational and neutron sciences.
Scientists have a powerful new tool in the quest to produce better plants for biofuels, bioproducts, agriculture and more.
