Update of roadmap of Large Research Infrastructures of the Czech Republic
The Roadmap of Large Research Infrastructures of the Czech Republic is a strategy document, which had been issued for the first time in 2010, and updated in 2011, 2015 and 2019. The latest 2019 update to the Roadmap has framed the large research infrastructures policy-making and public funding in the Czech Republic in 2020-2022, with a view to 2029. The Roadmap consists of an overview of the large research infrastructures agenda development in the Czech Republic since 2009, description of the large research infrastructures typology, and presentation of their international cooperation in the European Research Area and worldwide. Particular attention is also paid to the introduction to the international assessments of large research infrastructures, held in 2014 and 2017, and international evaluation of benefits of memberships of the Czech Republic in international R&D organisations, arranged in 2016. An outlook for the large research infrastructures policy development by 2029 completes the strategy part of the Roadmap.

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.
