Atomic-level imaging has finally arrived at UC Davis! Introducing the newest addition to the Biological Electron Microscope Core Facility. The College of Biological Sciences is home to 7 of 17 Core Facilities on the Davis campus and we are thrilled to add this disruptive and catalyzing world-class tech to the UC Davis research arsenal.
Chancellor Gary S. May and Mark Winey, dean of the College of Biological Sciences, recently cut the ribbon on a new cryo-EM facility in Briggs Hall. The $2.5 million microscope is open to all campus researchers. It can collect thousands of images a day to assemble into movies showing how proteins and other biomolecules do their work.
