Protein Production & Structural Biology Resources at UNC
Friday, September 21, 2012
12:00 – 2:00 PM
Bioinformatics Auditorium 1131
Structures of macromolecules at atomic resolution have helped to revolutionize modern biology. Specialized UNC Core Facilities can help you quickly and economically utilize structural biology methodologies for your own research.
This workshop will provide information on the UNC Cores that support (large-scale) protein production & purification as well as all aspects of high-resolution structural analyses via computational methods, X-ray crystallography, and NMR spectroscopy, and the resources available for how to meet your research needs.
Speakers: Mischa Machius, PhD; Brenda Temple, PhD; Michael Miley, PhD; and Andrew Lee, PhD
“UNC-Chapel Hill rose to ninth from 16th among leading private and public research universities for the level of federal funding ($545.99 million) devoted to research and development in all fields during fiscal 2010.”

UNC Libraries is upgrading its interlibrary loan/document delivery (aka Carolina BLU) software. In the process, the record of your interlibrary loan/document delivery requests prior to July 1, 2007 will be deleted. If you wish to retain your older request history, you should log in to your account at http://www.lib.unc.edu/interlibraryloan.html and view “All Requests.” Print the list or copy and paste it into a spreadsheet for your records.
More information is available at http://www.lib.unc.edu/blogs/news/index.php/2012/05/interlibrary-loancampus-delivery-upgrade-work-in-may/.
You may experience problems accessing Web of Science tonight, Jan. 19, 2012. If so, use this link if on campus. If off campus, you can connect to Zoological Record and click on the “Select a database” tab to switch to Web of Science.
Regular access should resume by the morning.
Did you notice today’s Google logo? It celebrates the 374th birthday of geologist Nicolas Steno, and illustrates his most famous contributions, the Law of Superposition and the Principle of Original Horizontality. The Law of Superposition states that the oldest rock layers are deposited sequentially, and the Principle of Original Horizontality states that rock layers form horizontally. See the doodle and read more about Nicolas Steno in this Huffington Post article.
