Raz Zarivach Laboratory
Our lab is focused on the structural determination of magnetosome-related proteins derived from Magnetotactic bacteria. A second research theme at the lab is focused on the structural determination of proteins derived from various pathogenic bacteria. We are involved in several collaborations at BGU as well as other research centers in Israel and around the world.
The lab utilizes various techniques of molecular biology, biochemistry and crystallography in order to achieve better understanding of the structural features of various proteins of interest.
Our lab is a member of the Department of Life Sciences, Faculty of Natural Sciences and of the National Institute for Biotechnology in the Negev (NIBN) at the Ben-Gurion University, Israel. The lab is tightly connected with the Macromolecular Crystallography Research Center (MCRC), also located at the Ben-Gurion University. You can follow us on facebook (The Zarivach group).
