As part of an ongoing effort to enhance the structural understanding and knowledge of COVID19, Instruct-ERIC is taking part in a joint call for access of structural biology services for researchers. In partnership with iNEXT-Discovery and the Covid19-NMR initiative, the Joint Call for Access allows external researchers working on SARS-CoV-2 virus projects greater access to technology and equipment.
Two types of services can be requested:
1. Instruct-ERIC, iNEXT-Discovery and COVID19-NMR combine their expertly equipped and experienced facilities to prepare SARS-CoV-2 protein and RNA samples. This may be used at their own facilities for research purposes, or the prepared reagents can also be shared with external life science, biochemistry and structural biology collaborators in the field of virus-research.
2. Reagents that have been prepared in the applicant's own lab can be combined with our SARS-CoV-2 material to be further characterised at our facilities to obtain molecular and atomic insights into the functionality of individual or interacting Corona-virus components.
