Structural Biology Discussion Group
Structural biology aims direct visualization of macromolecules and therefore provides the most definitive way to describe its mechanisms of action. High resolution cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) is emerging and developing technique in structural biology capable of producing density maps for direct atomic modelling.
Every Thursday at 9.00, we gather a discussion group to better understand what is the current practice of cryo-EM, critically assess where it falls short, present the most recent developments and applications to interesting biological problems. We encourage everyone to take active part.
Location: SciLifeLab Stockholm, Alpha 5, Kinnekulle room.
Presenter: Jose Miguel de la Rosa Trevin
Home lab: Spanish National Research Council
