Workshop “Upconversion Immunoassays for the Diagnosis of Bee Diseases”, September 12, 2019
CEITEC Masaryk University (CEITEC MU), Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry, Czech Academy of Science (IMC CAS), and Regensburg University (RU) organize jointly a workshop on the diagnosis of bee diseases. The workshop will start at 9:00 am at Masaryk University Campus Bohunice, building A35, room 211. The speakers include Zdeněk Farka, Zuzana Mikušová, Matěj Pastucha, and Petr Skládal from CEITEC MU, Daniel Horák and Uliana Kostiv from IMC CAS, Hans H. Gorris and Matthias J. Mickert from RU, and Antonín Hlaváček from the Institute of Analytical Chemistry, Czech Academy of Science. The workshop will focus on the application of photon-upconversion nanoparticles as sensitive labels in biomedical applications and immunoassays for diagnosis of bee diseases. The lectures will present recent advances in the fields of upconversion nanoparticle functionalization, single-molecule immunoanalysis, and will introduce the joint research project focused on the development of multiplexed assay for bacterial bee pathogens. In case of interest, please register by e-mail (email@example.com) before September 6, 2019.

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.
