I2PC belongs to INSTRUCT, the European Strategic Infrastructure Project (ESFRI) in the area of Structural Biology.
I2PC provides support to structural biologists, helping them to maximize the extraction of biological knowledge from their microscopy images.
I2PC also provides support and training in the use of image processing software, at the same time that it develops software and standards oriented towards the standardization, simplification and reliability of the image processing tasks.
For a theoretical and practical background on image processing using Scipion, Xmipp and other tools available through Scipion, the Instruct Image Processing Center (I2PC) is organizing short Webinar cycles. There will be two cycles: New image processing workflows, and Scipion’s tools. Webinars will be available through the CSIC Conecta platform
08-Apr-2020 A new, state-of-the-art cryo-electron microscope (cryo-EM) has been installed at Instruct Centre ES following a joint, eight-million-euro investment of the Spanish National Center for Biotechnology (CNB-CSIC) and EU structural funds. The JEOL JEM-Z300FSC (CRYO ARM™ 300) microscope, housed at the CNB-CSIC in Madrid, is the first of its kind to be
