#IBSBM2017, Brno

Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Conference 2017

The 3rd Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Conference, which will take place in Brno, Czech Republic, from May 24 till May 26, 2017. Brno is the city of Gregor Johann Mendel, a founder of modern genetics and one of the first scientists who applied multidisciplinary approach to explain his observations. Social programme of the meeting will include visit of the Mendel’s Museum and dinner at the Augustinian Abbey, where Gregor Johann Mendel worked and lived.

Instruct is a distributed European Research Infrastructure, which provides scientists with access to all major cutting edge technologies that enable biomacromolecular structure determination at atomic resolution. Access to all of these technologies has been available to European member researchers from February 2012. The inaugural Instruct Structural Biology Meeting at Heidelberg in 2013 successfully showcased integrative structural biology and its impact on biological research and biomedicine. The second Biennial took place in Florence in 2015 continuing the integrative line with an increased focus on innovation. This new edition will include sessions that represent recent structural biology highlights, emerging methods and technologies and results of biomedical importance.
