Mark J. van Raaij is Group Leader in the Department of Macromolecular Structures at CNB . His group research focuses on structural biology of the tail fibres of viruses and bacteriophages. Knowledge of the structures of viral and bacteriophage fibre proteins could lead to a variety of biotechnological applications. Modification of the bacteriophage fibre receptor binding specificities could permit improved detection and elimination of specific bacteria. The skills and expertise of the group cover construction of bacterial expression vectors, protein expression, purification, characterization and crystallisation and crystallographic structure determination by de novo or molecular replacement phasing.
