Instruct-ERIC Training call now open
Call for proposals for Instruct Centre Training Courses to be held in 2020 is now open.
This call is for events co-organized with either Instruct-ERIC Centres or Instruct-ERIC research sites* (in Instruct countries without an Instruct Centre), with representatives of the Instruct-ERIC centre being part of the scientific organizing committee of the course. The course venue can be located at different locations than the centres, provided that the location is relevant for Instruct-ERIC policy planned, organised and led by Instruct Centres or by approved Instruct research sites* (in Instruct countries without an Instruct Centre). Courses may be organized in collaboration with other organisations or institutions; the rationale and detail of any collaborative component of the course should be made explicit in the application.
The quality of training is the main criteria and the Training Committee will exercise their discretion to uphold this above all other considerations. Courses co-organized with industrial partners are encouraged. Courses may be funded up to 12000 Euros. Applications showcasing integrative approaches to structural biology are encouraged.
Submission will only be received by the online system.
Deadline for proposal subission is 5pm CET, Friday 13th March 2020. Applicants must register on the Instruct-ERIC website where the proposal submission forms and further information is available.

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.
