Welcome to Wen Jiang Group


The Jiang group is a member of the Markey Center for Structural Biology, Department of Biological Sciences, Purdue University. The researches in this group are highly interdisciplinary. We are interested in structural biology of viruses, large macromolecular complexes, and membrane proteins. The major tool we use is electron cryo-microscopy (cryo-EM), an emerging technique that has seen dramatic progresses and expansion of the field recently. Our researches center around the technique developement and application of this method, aiming at higher resolution (3-4 Angstrom), higher throughtput imaging and 3-D reconstruction, and broader applicability for new target systems and by novice users. See more detailed descriptions of our research projects here.
