Laboratory Our laboratory is in the Natural Sciences Building (Room 4311) in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of California, San Diego. We have a well equipped research laboratory to carry molecular biology and biochemical experiments. The total laboratory space is over 1000 square feet with a main area with eight benches and extra space for heavy equipment.
Computers We count with a computer room with Linux workstations to carry all the calculations required for our work and a high resolution scanner for electron micrographs.
Major instrumentation Our laboratory has a CM120 transmission electron microscope and a robot to prepare cryo-samples. We are also members of the state-of-the-art UCSD Cryo-Electron Microscopy Facility. The multi-million cryo-EM facility at the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department counts with two FEI transmission electron microscopes: a 200kV Sphera and a 300kV Polara, besides supporting equipment like cryo-holders, cryo-stage, quick-freezing set-up and carbon evaporator. We collect X-ray data at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory.
