Current Research


Structures determined by the Hinck laboratory, or in a few cases by others in collaboration with members of the Hinck laboratory, are listed below along with their corresponding PDB code and primary citation.

Sample images are provided in the image gallery (note, if you click on the thumbnails, this will display a larger image and provide additional information).  

Structures are arranged in descending order (with respect to the date that they were deposited in the PDB).
