New webpage on ciisb.org
A new page “Who is Who in Czech Structural Biology” has been added to the web site of Czech Infrastructure of integrative Structural Biology with the intention to map the landscape of Czech Structural Biology, facilitate communication, and stimulate collaborations within our scientific community. The current version lists 53 names of research group leaders (RGL), principal investigators (PI), and core facility heads (CF Heads). The list is probably far from being complete and is meant as a starting catalogue, which will be modified on the fly. To avoid misunderstanding of multiple affiliations, the catalogue lists only names and specifies research focus of each individual with the web link to his/her web and not to their institutions. We will appreciate if you point out any mistake you found and/or if you suggest any improvements, which would enhance its information content. We will be also happy for any propositions of names which you miss in the current listing.
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.
