The iNEXT workshop on Integrated Methodologies and Approaches for Structural Biology was attended by more than 170 participants, and hosted by CEITEC Masaryk University from 29-31 May 2019. The meeting was organised by Prof. Vladimír Sklenář, with a focus on providing a comprehensive overview of the state-of the-art integrative methodologies to existing and potential users of iNEXT facilities. 20 prominent speakers reported on recent advances and developments in modern structural biology methods.

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.
