Third Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting

The third Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting will take place in Brno, Czech Republic the 25-26th of May 2017. Brno is the city of Johann Gregor Mendel, a founder of modern genetics and one of the first scientists who applied multidisciplinary approach to explain his observations. Social programme of the meeting will include visit of the Mendel’s Museum and dinner at the Augustinian Abbey, where Johann Gregor Mendel worked and lived.

The inaugural Instruct Structural Biology Meeting at Heidelberg in 2013 successfully showcased integrative structural biology and its impact on biological research and biomedicine. The second Biennial took place in Florence in 2015 continuing the integrative line with an increased focus on innovation. This new edition will include sessions that represent recent structural biology highlights, emerging methods and technologies and results of biomedical importance.
