Our unit provides high quality structural characterization methods to the field of biological science, aiming to further understand the mechanism and action of biological molecules. We manage specialized and technical instruments including protein chemical analyses, mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance,X-ray analyzer and ultracentrifugal analysis. Our challenge to research, develop and fine-tune novel characterization methods for biological molecules, is an endless yet rewarding process.

What's New?

A search engine, Ariadne, was developed for the identification of RNAs by retrieving sequence databases using tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) data.
