Pilot Version of On-line Submission System for Open Access requests to CIISB Core Facilities
So far, all requests for Open Access to CIISB Core facilities required submission of filled paper forms via email. Since January 2020, new on-line submission system offers simplified protocol for submission of requests for open access to all ten CIISB Core Facilities. All received project proposals of potential users are immediately forwarded to the evaluation process. If the proposals are evaluated positively the applicants are instantly invited to conduct their experiments. This modification speeds up the evaluation process and greatly facilitate communication between the applicants and staff of the CIISB Core Facilities.
At the moment this system is in a pilot version and it will we be fully functional soon.

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.
