UCSC's Chemical Screening Center houses high-throughput screening(HTS) robotics that are used to search for biologically active compounds and siRNA targeted toward a variety of biological systems. Investigators can test up to 30,000 chemical compounds per day for biological function and/or usefulness in fighting diseases.
- The Macromolecular Structure Function Core Facility (MSFCF) supports researchers with state of the art instrumentation, supplies, and expertise for the structural characterization of biological macromolecules. Resources are available for crystallization and structure determination as wells as biophysical characterization of macromolecular stability and interactions.
The mass spectrometry facility provides analytical support for the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and other academic departments at the University of California, Santa Cruz. The facility is to enhance the research, educational, and public service missions of the University.http://www.chemistry.ucsc.edu/
The NMR facility brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers comprising of faculty from Chemistry, Biochemistry and Biology. Presently the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry NMR facility manages three high resolution NMR spectrometers.
The X-ray Laboratory is one of the analytical facilities within the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of California, Santa Cruz. The laboratory currently offers X-ray diffraction studies of small molecule, single crystal samples.
The University of California Santa Cruz Materials Analysis for Collaborative Science (UCSC MACS) Facility is an advanced microscopy and materials facility located at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, CA.
