The final week of February, 2019 (Feb. 25 - Mar 1), iLab Operations Software will be conducting an internal event and will be staffed at significantly reduced levels. iLab Support will prioritize critical issues first (i.e. issues that prevent key workflows from completing) and to escalate an issue, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, on the iLab Support phone (regional numbers can be found here). Regular support tickets will be monitored periodically and processed in order of submission starting March 4th, 2019. During this time, you can also refer to the iLab Help Site and iLab Status Page for site information. Please note that this will not affect standard Core Facility Operations.

UTHSA X-Ray Crystallography

Overview of Services

The mission of the X-ray Crystallography Core Laboratory is to provide state-of-the-art resources to researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, and to external users, enabling the detailed 3-D analyses of biological macromolecules that play important roles in human health. This is a full service core in that it not only offers access to sophisticated equipment and technologies but also offers advice and technical assistance in sample preparation. Services are also provided to investigators without funding to facilitate the development of pilot data for new potentially fundable projects, as core resources permit.
