MacBio April 2016

Macromolecular Biochemistry (formerly Protein Chemistry) is a section of the Leiden Institute of Chemistry at Leiden University, comprizing the PIs Marcellus Ubbink, Remus Dame, and Hugo van Ingen.

The research is aimed at understanding protein & nucleic acid structure, function and interactions. Particular interests comprise protein-protein interactions & enzyme function (Prof. Ubbink) and chromatin research, such as structure and function of nucleosomes (Dr. van Ingen) and biophysical aspects of protein - DNA interactions (Dr. Dame).

The section houses equipment for recombinant protein production and a variety biophysical characterisation methods.
