Prof. Tainer, Ph.D. from Duke University in structural biochemistry, Damon Runyon - Walter Winchell Fellow with Arthur Olson on computer graphics, currently Professor at Scripps, senior scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National lab. John Tainer designed, developed, and directs the combined small angle x-ray scattering (SAXS) and macromolecular x-ray crystallography (MX) synchrotron beamline SIBYLS (Structurally Integrated BiologY for Life Sciences) at the Advanced Light Source. His projects strive to understand macromolecular machines including MRE11 complex, RAD51 paralogues, FEN1 complexes, nucleotide excision repair, and DNA base repair complexes relevant to human health and bio-manufacturing and synthetic biology. His efforts on advanced technologies focus on combined methods to determine structures, conformations and assemblies both in solution by X-ray scattering and at high resolution by crystallography.
