The Crystallography, Structure and Function of Biological Macromolecules Research Group (MACROM)Open in a new window carries out research on the three-dimensional structure of biomolecules using single-crystal X-ray diffraction techniques, with the aim of studying the structure of DNA and its interactions with drugs, ions and proteins. The group employs two complementary methods: crystallography and recombinant DNA techniques.

MACROM is currently focusing on the study of nucleoplasmin and human HMGA1a. Nucleoplasmin is a nuclear chaperone that is involved in remodelling sperm chromatin, which occurs after fertilisation. HMGA1a is involved in a variety of biological processes, including the formation of different types of cancer.
