TCSB - Technion Center for Structural Biology

Emerson building

Established by the LS&E and the RBNI, the TCSB provides Structural Biology expertise, education and infrastructure to enhance interdisciplinary biomedical research. Our state-of-the-art facility for Macromolecular Crystallography allows for in-house high-resolution X-ray data collection to zoom in on Biology at the atomic level. Along with the most advanced crystallography robotics, the TCSB houses the highest intensity rotating-anode X-ray generator on the market, FR-X by Rigaku.
