The 3rd Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Conference
The 3rd Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Conference took place in Brno, Czech Republic, from May 24 to May 26, 2017 hosted by Instruct-CZ/CEITEC. Brno is the city of Johann Gregor Mendel, a founder of modern genetics and one of the first scientists who applied a multidisciplinary approach to explain his observations. The social programme of the meeting included a visit to the Mendel’s Museum and dinner at the Augustinian Abbey, where Mendel worked and lived.

250 scientists from all over Europe and beyond participated at the conference including researchers who presented their results obtained through access to major cutting edge technologies available at Instruct Centres. Access has been available to European member researchers since February 2012. This the third edition of the Biennial conference, the previous ones being hosted in Heidelberg and Florence and the programme included sessions representing recent structural biology highlights, emerging methods and technologies and results of biomedical importance.
PSB SYMPOSIUM "MACROMOLECULES IN ACTION"
The aim of this meeting is to illustrate how the big biological questions are resolved by combining key methods in structural biology (eg X-ray and neutron crystallography, cryo-EM, NMR and small angle scattering - SAXS and SANS)
Instruct-ERIC Joint Research Awards: Call for proposals
Instruct is inviting applications for funding for joint research that develops new, or improves existing access services delivered by Instruct to the user community. The aim is to develop and progress technologies to a stage where they can be made available through the Instruct access programme.
