What is NMRFAM
The National Magnetic Resonance Facility at Madison (NMRFAM) is a Biomedical Technology Research Resource (BTRR), a National Institutes of Health (NIH) / National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS)-funded, shared instrumentation laboratory located at the University of Wisconsin-MadisonDepartment of Biochemistry.
In addition to assisting users in their research, NMRFAM actively seeks collaborative projects that present substantial technical challenges and serve to drive the development of the Center’s Technology Research and Development (TR&D) Projects.
NMRFAM’s Current TR&D Projects
Automation in NMR data collection, spectral analysis and assignment, and structure determination of small- and moderate-sized proteins and RNA molecules.
Determination of the structure, dynamics, and functional properties of challenging proteins and nucleic acids and their complexes by NMR and SAXS approaches.
NMR-based studies of metabolomics and natural products including LC-MS solid-phase extraction of molecules of interest.
2019 NMRFAM Introductory Structure Determination Workshop (June 2-7, 2019) space is limited! Register today!
NMRFAM-SPARKY Distribution – the popular NMR analysis program SPARKY recompiled (including updated python and Tcl/Tk) with incorporation of PINE-Sparky, enhancements to import/export to the structural analysis program CYANA, and other useful python extensions.
