About Us

SER‐CAT

The SouthEast Regional Collaborative Access Team is an organization consisting of 20 Member and 4 Associate User institutions, mostly located in the SouthEastern region of the USA.

Its beamlines provide third generation x-ray capabilities to macromolecular crystallographers and structural biologists located in the southeastern region of the United States.

Emphasis is placed on de novo SAD/MAD structure determination, high-resolution structural analyses, micro crystals, large unit cells, drug design, soft X-ray data collection and next-generation beamline automation. SER-CAT is located at the Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory, and is operated by the University of Georgia; Professor Bi-Cheng Wang, Director.
