Instruct has 16 Instruct Centres in Europe and Israel offering access to a full range of advanced technologies and expert support. Access to the infrastructure at Instruct Centres is provided for all Instruct members and there are no charges (consumable costs, accommodation and travel are supported by Instruct funds, up to a maximum of €1100
“Showcasing Integrative Structural Biology”. Florence (Italy), 20-22 May 2015 The second Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting will showcase integrative structural biology and its impact on biological research. Register now! Student fellowships available (deadline Friday 13th March 2015).
Spain has been in close contact with Instruct since the early stages of the preparatory phase of this Infrastructure. Membership of Instruct with full rights came only with the signing of the International Consortium Agreement at the First Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting in Heidelberg in May 2013. In the relative short period since the
A maximum of 20,000€ per project will be awarded to support a limited number of pilot studies proposed by researchers from Instruct member countries (BE, CZ, DE, ES, FR, IL, IT, NL, PT, SE, UK). Projects should propose basic or applied research which is preliminary in nature. The intent of this support is to help
In the frame of three European projects, the Instruct ESFRI project on Structural Biology, the Biostruct-X project and the COST Action MP1207, the Instruct Image Processing Center at CNB-CSIC is planning training schools on 3D Reconstruction in Electron Microscopy and Soft X-ray Microscopy for January 2014. The course will focus on image processing topics, introducing
An intensive meeting devoted to discuss the image processing challenges raised by recent advances in Soft X-ray tomography of cellular materials at cryogenic temperatures. The topics to be discussed include Image Formation, Depth of Field and Zone Plates, Contrast Enhancement, information Recovery and Tomographic Algorithms.
2nd “Call for proposals utilising Instruct-funded structural biology techniques” (March 5th – April 11th). Proposals for funded access to the full set of Instruct facilities are now invited. Access to the Instruct Centre technologies is FREE to scientists from Instruct member countries.
The Workshop covers the details of the Xmipp software package, that is used for reconstructing 3D maps from sets of individual particle images. The majority of the workshop consists of hands-on sessions designed to familiarize the attendees with the public-domain Xmipp software. Registration and further details
In the last two years Instruct has given academic and commercial scientists across Europe access to a full portfolio of integrated technologies, thanks to the collaboration of fifteen of Europe’s leading structural biology research institutes. Today, June 3rd, Instruct is pleased to welcome Spain as a new Instruct member state. Spain joins nine countries that
As we previously announced in this web site, Spain formally joined Instruct at a signing ceremony coinciding with the First Biennial Structural Biology Meeting in Heidelberg on the 24th of May 2013. This meeting will take place as a session of the XIII International Congress of the Spanish Biophysical Society in Valencia (Spain) next week
