This page is the home page for the research groups headed by Scott Garman, and Jeanne Hardy. These groups share a common interest in structural biology, including X-ray crystallographic techniques. Our labs are all located on the 10th floor of Lederle Tower, along with the X-ray diffraction facility.
If you are looking for the home page of the UMass X-ray diffraction facility, you can find it here.
Scott Garman's home page is here, and Jeanne Hardy's is here.
We offer a journal club every spring. In addition, we offer an intensive course in hands-on X-ray diffraction in January. In this hands-on course, up to 12 participants learn how to crystallize proteins, measure diffraction data and place atomic models into electron density. The lecture notes are available as pdf files (1, 2) and online slideshow (1,2), and are indexed on a site map. Recordings of two shorter guest lectures on crystallography (given by Karsten Theis for Chem791a, Biomolecular structure) are also available (1, 2).
The home page of the Crystallography Journal Club (BMB 695a, Methods in Macromolecular Crystallography) is here.
As of September 2013, group meetings are Mondays at 9am in LGRT 745E. If you have a conflict with your presentation date, it is your responsibility to switch with someone else.
