Article - A Shared Vision For Macromolecular Crystallography Over The Next 5 Years
A recent article in Structural Dynamics considers where Macromolecular Crystallography (MX) is headed in the next five years and the influences of other complementary techniques, such as Cryo-EM. The authors "show how data collection has changed over the preceding five years and how alternative methods have emerged." They then "explore how MX at synchrotrons might develop over the next five years."

Whether using crystallography or cryo-EM, MiTeGen supports your research with the leading tools for the techniques your lab uses to solve structures.
Upcoming Events
At MiTeGen, we sponsor numerous educational events, conferences, and symposiums throughout the year. We believe in supporting researchers and our industry. Listed below are two upcoming events you should try to attend!

For 2020 the ACA Summer Course is "directed towards Single-Crystal Chemical Crystallography and Powder Diffraction techniques, as applicable to small molecule studies." It is "designed to instruct attendees in the theory and practice of these two aspects of crystallography.”

May 31st to June 6th
West Lafayette, Indiana US

SEA COAST 2020 is organized to provide basic instruction on fundamentals and principles of macromolecular X-ray Crystallo-graphy (MX) to graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and more both from academia & industry, who have background and/or are interested in structural biology and MX."

January 21st to 29th
Bangkok, Thailand

You Might Be Interested
At MiTeGen, one of our philosophies is to be a source of useful information to our customer, partners and readers. With this in mind we are sharing a few resources you might find valuable.

This program is oriented toward early career scientists such as an Assistant Professor or in an equivalent role. Its goal is to "help early career scientists become more competitive as grant applicants through first-hand experience with peer review and to enrich and diversify CSR’s pool of trained reviewers."

The NCCAT has "announced the opening of general user proposal (GUP) and training proposal (TP) access categories for limited early access to instrument time." GUP1 & 2 supports use of the NCCAT equipment while TP1 and TP2 provide training. Deadlines are quarterly with the next deadline being April 1, 2020.

Industry Job Openings

Laboratory of Protein Structure International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IIMCB), Warsaw, headed by Prof. Marcin Nowotny is looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher. This project will provide detailed information how interesting and important tRNA ligase proteins work, which is currently not fully understood. As a Postdoctoral Researcher: you will be responsible for expression and purification of proteins and their complexes. You will carry out biochemical characterization of enzymatic activity. You will be involved in preparation of the samples for cryo-EM data collection, EM data collection, structure solution, refinement and analysis.

The Receptor Structural Biology Group (Kastrup group) and Computational Receptor Biology Group (Gloriam group), Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology, University of Copenhagen wish to employ a joint Post Doc in G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) structural biology.
The Post Doc fellow will take part in an ambitious interdisciplinary project spanning virtual screening, pharmacology, chemistry, structural biology, and scientific database development.
Do you know a student interested in work experience? Please share the opportunities listed below with them

"Each summer DESY offers undergraduate students in physics, related natural science disciplines or computing the possibility to participate in the research activities of the laboratory. Selected candidates join in the day-to-day work of research groups at the DESY Laboratory in Hamburg or Zeuthen (Berlin) and participate in one of these activities. While the work in the groups is the main activity, there will also be a series of lectures (given in English) related to the research done at DESY. Visits to the accelerators and experiments are also included in this programme."

"The programme gives students the chance to come and work at one of the UK’s leading science facilities for a week. Initially students will receive a day's introduction to Diamond, covering all areas of Diamond and a look around the facility to see first hand how it operates. The main element of the week will be a three day project in a specific area, which students will complete and then present to their peers and other visitors on the final day (friends and family welcome). There will also be a chance to get involved in group activities and time to meet their peers and Diamond staff."
