Around 2006 the MSF was split into two parts. The Amino Acid Analysis and Edman sequencing moved over to the proteomics core in the Genome Center and the self use mass spectrometers from the MSF turned into the campus mass spectrometry facility.
The MSF and the Genome Center proteomics core are are essentially the same thing and occupy the same space in the Genome Center Building on campus. We maintain the MSF name and website because the Molecular Structure Facility (MSF) has been around a long time and a lot of people know our Edman and Amino Acid Analysis services through that name. We our proud that we are able to keep Edman and AAA operational (and even expanding) when most other facilities have closed them.
