Pearl Lab


Structural Biology

We apply techniques of Structural Biology to understand the mechanistic basis of assembly, regulation and specificity.

The Pearl lab is extremely well equipped for all aspects of modern structural biology, with state-of-the-art laboratories for molecular biology, recombinant expression in bacterial and eukaryotic systems, biochemistry, biophysics and X-ray crystallography. Excellent synchrotron access (~ 2 days/month) is available through rolling beam allocation programmes at Diamond and ESRF.
