THE SOUTHEAST COLLABORATORY FOR STRUCTURAL GENOMICS (SECSG) is a networked center across four southeast states with five partner institutions:
» University of Georgia
» Georgia State University
» University of Alabama at Birmingham
» University of Alabama in Huntsville
» Duke University
Our research focus is to develop and test experimental and computational strategies for high throughput structure determination of proteins by X-ray crystallography and NMR methods and to apply these strategies to scan the entire genome of an organism at a rapid pace. The eukaryotic organisms, Caenorhabditis elegans, Homo sapiens and an ancestrally-related prokaryotic microorganism having a small genome, Pyrococcus furiosus, are selected as representative genomes.
