Welcome to SEMC
The Simons Electron Microscopy Center provides expertise and resources for understanding both molecular and cellular structures. Molecular structure determination is enabled by high-end transmission electron microscopes (TEMs), direct detection cameras, and computational support for single particle analysis. Cellular structure determination is enabled by tomographic reconstructions using the TEMs and a focused ion beam (FIB) scanning electron microscope (SEM). SEMC is supported by dues from member institutions as well as the Simons Foundation.
We help researchers elucidate the intermolecular interactions and domain architectures of macromolecules within their native cellular assemblies.
