The scientific goal of this project is to maintain “crystallomics” pipelines at the NORCRYST consortium partners at a throughput level appropriate for the national technology platform for structural biology, and to benefit from the specialization of the nodes. In the short term, this will significantly enhance both the turnover time and the success rate for crystallography research services and projects. In the longer term, it will contribute to the “critical mass” of expertise and technology in structural biology to create an effective unit for strategic research partnering in efforts of chemical biology, bioprospecting, biomedicine and other Norwegian strategic priorities.

The Project is based on a Infrastructure grant from the Research Council of Norway in 2015.
