Self-assembly is a fundamental foundation of life, but what about co-assembly?

The journal Chemistry Eur J highlights in its cover the first structure of a new type of DNA/ligand complex where selective recognition of interfaces between different DNA secondary structures is observed for the first time.

The IMDEA-UAM-CSIC initiative, is inviting you to the workshop on X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFELs) “Scientific Opportunities for the Spanish Community at XFELs” that will be held entirely virtual on June 10-11, 2021.

A large part of the eukaryotic proteome is formed by intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs). IDPs take advantage of their lack of stable tertiary fold to perform multitude of cellular processes.

“¿Quieres reflexionar sobre la vida? Traigo rap. ¿Quieres comprender el universo? Traigo ciencia.” Así suena el estribillo del primer videoclip de ‘RAP conCIENCIA’, una iniciativa del Instituto Química-Física Rocasolano, IQFR

Dr. José M. Martín García (IQFR) is currently editing an special issue along with Prof. Marc Messerschmidt (Arizona State University, USA) and Dr. Jeney Wierman (SSRL, USA) on novel structural studies of coronavirus proteins.

Exceptionally brilliant, femtosecond-pulsed X-ray sources, the X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs), have brought a new way of conducting crystallography by probing nano/micrometresized crystals in a serial fashion.

Collaboration between IQFR scientists, CBM Severo Ochoa center and the Vigo and A Coruña Universities, together with Galchimia company, reveals unprecedent characteristics in a thermophile esterase, obtained from a hot spring
