Research GBB Biomolecular X-ray Crystallography Group

History (Dijkstra group)

A comprehensive overview of staff members and research projects until September 2017 can be found on this website.
Until September 2017, the Groningen Protein Crystallography group was headed by (emeritus) prof. Bauke Dijkstra, with Dr. Andy-Mark Thunnissen and Dr. Jaap Broos as scientific staff members, and Dr. Henriëtte Rozeboom and Dr. Ing. Tjaard Pijning as supporting staff members. The publication list of Em Professor Dijkstra can be found here.

Over the years, over 300 protein structures (> 100 unique) were determined in the group. A comprehensive overview of the research projects until September 2017 can be found on this website.
