Structural Biology Discussion Group, Structural Biotechnology Unit, KTH


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: Structural Biotechnology Unit, KTH
Title: Lipid interactions and catalytic mechanism of a membrane bound enzyme as determined by cryoEM
