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.
What to do when your grant is rejected
Losing out on a grant hurts, but don’t lose heart — average success rates are around 20% among large funders, so grant rejection is common. Discover how to bounce back, find alternative funding and boost your chances of success next time.
Revolutionary cryo-EM is taking over structural biology
The number of protein structures being determined by cryo-electron microscopy is growing at an explosive rate. A report published by Nature on February 10, 2020 says that a revolutionary technique for determining the 3D shape of biomacromolecules is booming. Last week, a database that collects protein and other molecular structures determined by cryo-electron microscopy, or cryo-EM, acquired its 10,000th entry.
