"Hydrodynamic and thermodynamic analysis of biological macromolecules and their interactions: multi-method approaches and global data analyses" practical course
The Instruct Practical Course "Hydrodynamic and thermodynamic analysis of biological macromolecules and their interactions: multi-method approaches and global data analyses", co-sponsored by FEBS and Arbre-Mobieu.
This course will provide theoretical, practical, and data analysis training in modern biophysical methods used to monitor and quantify molecular interactions - mainly analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC), isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC), surface plasmon resonance (SPR), and biolayer interferometry (BLI). The course will cover the biophysical theory, sample preparation, instrument demonstration and hands-on data analysis using computational tools.

The course is part of the 2019/20 Instruct training programme, which is a series of Instruct-sponsored workshops covering a wide range of structural biology techniques. For information about other similar courses, click here.
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.
