The University has moved into its "red" phase in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. All University staff, except those needed for business-critical activity, are now working remotely. Our facilities will therefore not be able to provide a normal service for the foreseeable future. Details of current arrangements and available services can be found here.

NMR

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is unique because it enables the investigation of biomolecules such as proteins, carbohydrates, nucleic acids and other biopolymers at atomic resolution under near-native conditions. The beauty of the technique lies in its versatility; unlike other structural techniques the sample conditions can be adapted to the biological system. NMR can therefore be used to answer an enormous range of biological questions relating to structures, dynamics, allostery, molecular interactions (including weak interactions) and small molecule screening.

The NMR Facility has core strengths in all areas of peptide, protein, nucleic acid and carbohydrate NMR, and staff will help users with all aspects of experimental design, data acquisition, processing and interpretation. The NMR Facility was funded by the BBSRC and the Wellcome Trust and includes three systems, operating at 500, 600 and 800 MHz 1H frequency, all equipped with state-of-the-art cryoprobes.
