Joint Center for Structural Genomics (JCSG)
The JCSG is a multi-institutional consortium with major activities at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI); the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation (GNF); the University of California, San Diego (UCSD); the Burnham Institute for Medical Research (Burnham); and the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (SSRL) at Stanford University.
The vision of the JCSG is to explore the expanding protein universe to find new challenges and opportunities to significantly contribute to new biology, chemistry and medicine through development of HT approaches to structural genomics. The mission of the JCSG is to operate a robust HT protein structure determination pipeline as a large-scale production center for PSI-2. A major goal is to ensure that innovative high-throughput approaches are developed that advance not only structural genomics, but also structural biology in general, via investigation of large numbers of high-value structures that populate protein fold and family space and by increasing the efficiency of structure determination at substantially reduced cost.
