PostEra Call: Help us Fight Coronavirus - Contribute your expertise to design inhibitors of the SARS-CoV-2 main protease
"We are an international group of scientists from academia and industry trying to do our small part to help combat COVID-19. This effort began when Chinese scientists worked rapidly to determine the structure of the novel SARS-CoV-2 main protease (Mpro), which triggered a massive crystal-based fragment screen at the XChem facility at UK’s Diamond Light Source. With the same urgency, we are now trying to progress these data towards what is desperately needed: effective, easy-to-make anti-COVID drugs.
We welcome contributions of many forms including scientific expertise, experimental capabilities, and indeed donations to make this possible.
If you are an experimentalist with hands to lend, especially a Virologist with live assays, please email us. If you wish to make a financial contribution to help make and test more compounds, please see our donation page."

New timsTOF Pro Mass Spectrometer installed at CEITEC.
New timsTOF Pro Mass Spectrometer (Bruker) has been installed at the Proteomics Core Facility, CEITEC MU. The new instrument brings another separation dimension (according collisional cross sections) in qualitative and quantitative characterization of complex protein samples as it is equipped by trapped ion mobility spectrometry (TIMS) module.

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.
