Protein Crystallography Group
Professor Dr. Eckhard Hofmann
Welcome to the Protein Crystallography Group.
We seek to determine the structure and functional mechanism of proteins. We use X-ray crystallography to determine the three-dimensional structures of those proteins in order to get insight into their function. The use of further biochemical and biophysical methods are crucial. A major focus in the laboratory is to understand the mechanism of membrane proteins.
The Protein Crystallography group has joined the RUB - Blaupause.
