Emerging Topics in Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance – A new on-line lecture series
With the support of the International Council on Magnetic Resonance in Biological Systems (ICMRBS) a new on-line lecture series on Emerging Topics in Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance starts on Thursday, June 4, 2020. The series is organized by Loren Andreas, Stefan Glöggler, Christian Griesinger, Mei Hong, Oscar Millet, Art Palmer, and Markus Zweckstetter.
The series will start at 16:00 CEST with two cutting-edge 30 minutes presentations with the following lecturers and topics:
Daniella Goldfarb (Weizmann Institute of Science)
Mn(II) DEER tracks two ‘closed’ ATP-, ADP-dependent conformations in yeast Hsp90 chaperone
Lewis Kay (University of Toronto)
NMR: The Big and the Invisible
Webinar-ID: 912 1943 8807 Password: bioNMR2020
The series will continue on a weekly basis.
Upgrade of the workflow for cryo-electron tomography and microscopy
The CIISB Cryo-electron microscopy core facility at CEITEC Masaryk University is expanding its services in the sample preparation for electron microscopy. The facility has recently acquired high-pressure freezer Leica EM ICE for vitrification of bulky biological specimen (up to 200 mm thickness). In addition, the freeze-substitution unit Leica EM AFS2 for resin embedding of the high-pressure frozen samples and the ultramicrotom Leica EM UC7 with the adapter for cryo-ultramicrotomy were purchased in order to provide the facility users with the complete workflow for preparation of thin section samples for both room-temperature electron microscopy and cryo-electron microscopy.
