Structural Biology Discussion Group, Kai Zhang


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 9.30, 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.

Venue: SciLifeLab Gamma-5 Becquerel room
Speaker: Kai Zhang, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UK
Title: Revealing an autoinhibition and activation mechanism of human dynein-1
