Equipment: Standard equipment for research in biochemistry and molecular biology is maintained at each participating campus. In addition, central facilities exist at several campuses for molecular biology and physical biochemistry. These facilities include instrumentation and support services for DNA synthesis, peptide synthesis, peptide sequencing and electron microscopy. Other specialized research equipment includes HPLC systems, high-field NMR spectrometers, (500 and 600 MHz), X-ray diffractometers, EPR spectrometers, laser-based lifetime and steady-state fluorometers, and mass spectrometers.
The Advanced Science Research Center on the campus of The City College of New York houses specialized high-end equipment and facilities open to all CUNY researchers and outside users. See: http://www.asrc.cuny.edu/facilities/
CUNY is one of the institutional members of the New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC). This Center, located adjacent to City College, houses the largest and most advanced cluster of high-field research magnets (NMR equipment) in the United States.
Students and faculty have free access to high-performance computing at various CUNY sites.
Library Facilities: The Gradue Center Mina Rees Library and each senior college maintains a wide selection of hard copy and electronic versions of science books and journals accessible to CUNY faculty and students. The Science, Industry, and Business Library (SIBL) of the New York Public Library is also located within the same building as the Graduate Center. The SIBL research collection comprises 1.5 million volumes.
