Special issue of Journal of Microscopy celebrating the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
Journal of Microscopy published a special issue celebrating the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry laureates
Professor Jacques Dubochet, Dr Joachim Frank and Dr Richard Henderson and their work on the Development of Cryo-Electron Microscopy for imaging of biomolecules in solution. The free virtual issue features 29 papers published in the Journal of Microscopy by these Nobel laureates during their careers, including a paper published in 2011 by Professor Dubochet entitled “Cryo-EM—the first thirty years.” This special issue is available for freeon the Wiley Online Library until the end of the year.

Nadrian C. Seeman: DNA, not Merely the Secret of Life
We build branched DNA species that can be joined using Watson-Crick base pairing to produce N-connected objects and lattices. We have used ligation to construct DNA topological targets, such as knots, polyhedral catenanes, Borromean rings and a Solomon's knot.
An Instruct/CIISB course took place at the CMS, IBT, Biocev on April 5 and 6, 2018.
This course/workshop allowed participants, with some prior knowledge and experience in macromolecular crystallography, to access the biophysical measurements section and the crystal handling/X-ray diffraction section of the Instruct CZ / CIISB CMS core facility for three practical work sessions.
XV. Discussions in Structural Molecular Biology and the 2nd User Meeting of the Czech Infrastructure for Integrative Structural Biology
In March, 2018, the Czech and Slovak community of structural biologists met at the "XV. Discussions in Structural Molecular Biology".
