The Molecular Graphics and Computation Facility is located in 175 Tan Hall. It is available to the College of Chemistry and campus community with operations supported by modest access and use fees. Email the Facility Director, Dr. Kathleen Durkin, for more information.

Technical consulting is available on project feasibility, equipment and software use. The Facility serves as a research resource in computational chemistry and scientific visualization for over 50 research groups in Chemistry and the wider campus community.

We provide high-performance computer graphics and computing resources for research and educational uses in chemistry and related disciplines. The facility was founded in 1990 with NIH funding and has since been supported through NIH, NSF and generous corporate sponsorship. Our currrent main funding is NSF (CHE-0840505)  Please reference this grant in publications resulting from use of the Facility.
