European Synchrotron Radiation Facility

is located in Grenoble, France

ESRF website

The European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), located in Grenoble - France, is a joint facility supported and shared by 19 European countries. The ESRF operates the most powerful synchrotron radiation source in Europe. Each year several thousand researchers travel to Grenoble where they work in a first-class scientific environment to conduct exciting experiments at the cutting edge of modern science. At the ESRF, physicists work side by side with chemists and materials scientists. Biologists, medical doctors, meteorologists, geophysicists and archaeologists have become regular users. Industrial applications are also growing, notably in the fields of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, petrochemicals and microelectronics.

About Structural Biology at ESRF

jsbg.gif Joint Structural Biology Group
The Structural Biology group operates a suite of beamlines dedicated to the study of biological macromolecules. The facility is comprised of three highly intense, tunable beamlines ID14-4, ID23-1 and ID29; two fixed wavelength beamlines ID14-1 and ID14-2; the world's first microfocus beamline dedicated to protein crystallography, ID23-2, and a protein solution scattering beamline ID14-3. This facility will have at its core three beam-lines optimized for highly automated, high-throughput sample evaluation.
