Astbury Launch Event
On 25 November 2019, the Astbury Biostructure Laboratory will be formally launched as an Instruct-ERIC site. To welcome the Astbury Biostructure Laboratory to Instruct-UK, Instruct-ERIC and the Astbury Centre are hosting a launch event at Nexus at the University of Leeds.
Join us for a one-day event, exploring the advances in technology and infrastructure that are revolutionising the way in which we interpret molecular and cellular functions, and find out how integrative approaches are connecting atomic-level structure with functionality at the cellular level.
The launch event will showcase the electron microscopy, NMR and mass spectrometry technologies and expertise of the Astbury Centre, and provides a chance to discover the funded research opportunities that are available through Instruct - including machine access, training, internships and R&D pilot project awards. As well as talks from experts in structural biology, there will be an opportunity to tour the facilities on offer through Instruct, and to ask your scientific questions directly to the specialists.

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.
