    Large-Scale Structure Determination

    Building on a decade of success and the solution of more than 1,000 structures, Wilson will continue to lead one of four, long-standing, large-scale PSI centers.

    The consortiumcalled the Joint Center for Structural Genomics (JCSG) and comprising scientists at the University of California, San Diego; Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation (GNF); Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute; and Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL), Stanford Universitywill continue to operate its pipeline for high-throughput structure determination. Structures that the group plans to tackle over the next five years include challenging targets, such as eukaryotic proteins, as well as protein-protein, protein-RNA, protein-DNA, and other complexes.

    One theme of the center's research will be the human "microbiome," the totality of microbes in a defined environment, such as the human digestive tract.

    "Interactions of bacteria with the human body are profound and have a significant impact on maintenance of general human h
