The University of Auckland - Structural Biology

Auckland - New Zealand

To understand how biological processes are orchestrated, it is essential to have knowledge of molecular structure. The binding of enzymes to their substrates; the recognition of antigens by antibodies; the ways that viruses enter and exit a cell. All of these processes are most readily understood in terms of the molecules involved, and their three-dimensional organization. Consequently, our research involves the study of molecular architecture, and its application to biology. We examine the organization of individual biological molecules, as well as the complexes into which these molecules assemble in vivo. We use a variety of physical techniques to study molecular structure, the most important of these being X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy and solution NMR spectroscopy.
