Applied Structural Biology & Methodology

About Us

Combining state-of-the-art technologies with expert knowledge of structural biology

The Applied Structural Biology & Methodology (ASBiM) research group brings together experts from various research and engineering disciplines, focusing on the development of tools and methodologies for structural biology. Our members, while conducting their research, also provide scientific and technical support to both academic and industrial users at the BL2S1 x-ray diffraction beamline of the Aichi Synchrotron.
