Piotr Attended EMBO Practical Course „Characterization of macromolecular complexes by integrative structural biology” in France

The course is organized every 2 years and its first edition was held in 2002, it takes place continuously at the European Photon & Neutron Science Campus (EPN). The EPN science campus is an international science hub in Grenoble, hosting three major European institutes – European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) and Institut Laue–Langevin (ILL) – along with the Institute of Structural Biology (IBS) and joint partnerships. From 139 applications from 30 different countries, 20 participants were selected and given the opportunity to participate in the 10th edition of the course.

This EMBO Practical Course aimed to teach participants how to integrate structural biology approaches to expedite characterization of large macromolecular complexes from the atomic to cellular scale. Lectures explained the techniques used to produce, purify, reconstitute, and characterize multi-subunit protein and protein/nucleic acid complexes for structural analysis.

Most importantly, the course participants not only had the opportunity to gain experience and educate themselves through lectures, but also through practical classes, during which they could learn about techniques such as: serial crystallography, cryo-electron microscopy, small-angle scattering, NMR, atomic force microscopy, native mass spectrometry, FRET, super-resolution light microscopy.
