6th European Crystallography School in Budapest
Registration to the 6th European Crystallography School to be held in Budapest, Hungary, between 5 and 11 July 2020 is open. Please visit the website for more details: https://ecs6.ecanews.org
Undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students, postdocs, young scientists and professionals from the fields of chemistry, biology and solid state sciences who are seeking to participate on an intensive course in crystallography are welcome. We are pleased to announce that most eminent scientists have accepted the invitation to teach in the School. Theoretical and practical lectures, hands-on tutorials and laboratory practices will take place. Poster sessions are also organised.
Bursary for travel and accommodation is provided to students thanks to the generosity of the ECA and IUCr. Application deadline for bursary is 1stFebruary, early bird registration and abstract submission deadline is 1st March.
The school will be useful in further academic development of the participants offering a training for new generations of crystallographers.
New timsTOF Pro Mass Spectrometer installed at CEITEC.
New timsTOF Pro Mass Spectrometer (Bruker) has been installed at the Proteomics Core Facility, CEITEC MU. The new instrument brings another separation dimension (according collisional cross sections) in qualitative and quantitative characterization of complex protein samples as it is equipped by trapped ion mobility spectrometry (TIMS) module.

Cryo-EM reaches yet another milestone – Comments on two recent cryo-EM atomic resolution studies
Two studies published during last two weeks have reported that single particle cryo-EM data can be now resolved to 1.20Å or 1.25Å, respectively. The groups of Sjors H.W. Scheres (LMB-MRC, Cambridge) and Holger Stark (MPI Göttingen) have for the first time shown that atomic resolution is attainable by single particle cryo-EM.
