Instruct-ERIC International Access Call
We are delighted to announce the opening of the Instruct access call for International users. In the last 4 years Instruct has been working to strengthen the collaboration with the international structural biology community, in particular with Latin America. In this context, we are starting Instruct-ERIC International Access Calls by offering the opportunity for scientists working in institutions that have signed Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) to apply to access the Instruct Research Infrastructure. For more information in what services are offered visit our catalogue. To apply you need to belong to one of the institutions mentioned below and to upload an application online.
You can find more information here.

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.
