The Berkeley BACEM Facility, housed in Stanley Hall, is led by Professor Eva Nogales and is expected to begin operation in fall 2016. This cryo-EM resource is mostly dedicated to single particle studies that aim for high-resolution structures and the description of complex biochemical or conformational co-existing states. The facility is supported by the member institutions of the BACEM consortium, and acquisition of the instrumentation was funded by HHMI.

The facility’s instrumentation features automated data collection. Both single-particle micrographs and tomography tilt series can be collected.
Use of the facility is limited to members of the BACEM consortium.
The current schedule can be viewed at this calendar.
Procedures and documentation for use of the Berkeley BACEM facility’s equipment are accessible at this folder.
