Instruct launch signals new opportunities for European structural biology researchers

Today’s launch of Instruct, a distributed research infrastructure for structural biology, will give scientists across Europe access to a portfolio of technologies, thanks to the collaboration of 14 leading research institutes. Dave Stuart, Instruct Director, said, “Never before have European biologists had a single point of access to all the technology and expertise they need.” Instruct provides access to some of the world’s most advanced technology, such as sample preparation for cryo-electron tomography using ion beams at the Max Planck Institute in Germany and the automated system for mammalian expression at Oxford. A full catalogue of the accessible technology is available on the Instruct Hub. Dino Moras, Principal Investigator at IGBMC-CERBM Instruct Centre in Strasbourg added, "Structural biology is at a critical stage where close integration with cell biology will open up new and powerful insights into treating diseases, from killer cancers to the common cold."
