In Observance of U.S. Holiday, Memorial Day, Agilent Cross Lab/ iLab Operations Software Support Help Desk will be closed during U.S. hours on Monday May 25th, 2020. We will resume regular U.S. support hours on Tuesday May 26th, 2020. EU and APAC Support will remain open during this time. For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, to escalate a call on the iLab Support phone and we will prioritize those requests first.

UTSW Macromolecular Biophysics Resource

Overview of Services

The Mission of MBR is to provide access to state-of-the-art biophysical instrumentation, experimental design, and analyses to the UTSW community. MBR seeks to accomplish this goal by maintaining a wide variety of such instrumentation and training users regarding its proper operation. Further, users are trained on the analysis and interpretation of their data, if appropriate.
Another means of achieving MBR's aims is for its personnel to enter into collaborative arrangements with principal investigators. These collaborations can take on many forms. For example, MBR personnel can aid in the design and performance of the experiments, or both of these aspects can be handled solely by MBR. Seeking off-campus and industrial collaborations will be an important step in optimally utilizing MBR's considerable resources.
Another important goal of MBR is to develop new and innovative ways to analyze biophysical data. To this end, MBR personnel have authored software for the presentation and analysis of several biophyscial data types. We plan to continue this effort to extend the current capabilities of biophysical analysis.
