Welcome to the OPPF-UK

The Oxford Protein Production Facility UK is a structural proteomics facility in the Division of Structural Biology of the Department of Medicine, Oxford University, funded by the Medical Research Council and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council as a National Resource Centre for protein production and crystallization.

The OPPF-UK aims to promote and facilitate high throughput structural biology for the UK academic community. It is the first stage in a structural proteomics programme for the UK and represents an essential stepping stone toward the practical exploitation of the wealth of information coming from the human genome sequencing projects.

The OPPF-UK is located in the Research Complex at Harwell, adjacent to the Diamond Light Source.
