Instruct-ERIC is a pan-European research infrastructure in structural biology, making high-end technologies and methods available to all European researchers.
Structural Biology is one of the key frameworks on which we interpret molecular and cellular functions. The main experimental technologies are complementary, and increasingly link detailed atomic structure with cellular context.
Structural Biology is currently in the middle of a revolution enabled by significant advances in the tools (direct electron detectors in EM, advances in synchrotron sources and detectors, XFELs, ultra-high field NMR, super-resolution cryo-light miscroscopy).
Genomic techniques have allowed us to characterise whole organisms and ecosystems, as well as focusing on single genes and their function. These data provide an insight to how organisms, their environments, and interactions influence the functioning...
From 1st July, a pilot programme will be implemented to evaluate a revised funding model for Instruct-ERIC access. Due to the extreme differential in the cost of providing access using different technologies, the Instruct Executive Committee has agreed...
