The 5th Workshop of Structural Biology in the Helmholtz Association
The 5th Workshop of Structural Biology in the Helmholtz Association will occur December 17 - 18 2019 at the DKFZ in Heidelberg.
The workshop brings together researchers from various Helmholtz Centers and Research Fields (DESY, DKFZ, DZNE, FZJ, HMGU, HZB, HZI, KIT, MDC) of the Helmholtz Association and collaborating institutions to present and exchange current structural biology research in understanding structural mechanisms in biology and biomedicine.

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.
