eBIC Cryo-EM Sample preparation course 13th-15th Nov 2019
The registration has opened for eBIC’s 2019 Cryo-EM Sample Preparation Workshop. The course will take place on 13 – 15th November 2019 at Diamond Light Source in Didcot, UK and is aimed at newcomers to Cryo-EM for preparation and initial characterisation of samples for cryo-EM experiments– full details in link below.
The workshop will provide near one-to-one tuition and hands-on preparation of cryo-EM sample grids taking full advantage of eBIC’s Titan Krios’s, Talos and Glacios.
Hands on experience will be gained on the latest Leica GP2 freeze plungers and Vitrobot Mark IV.
Sponsored by Thermo Fisher and Leica Microsystems (UK), this year’s workshop is open to both academic and industrial delegates.

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.
