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.

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

Javier Oroz and Douglas Laurents, from the "Manuel Rico" NMR laboratory, have characterized structural transitions in Orb2, a functional prion which is key for memory consolidation in Drosophila.

A joint collaboration between ten research groups unveils a resistance mechanism of the pathogen bacteria involved in colorectal cancer Fusobacterium nucleatum.


These observations provide evidence of autocatalytic iodine release from atmospheric aerosol

Researchers at IQFR-CSIC and EMBL (France) publish a special issue, which gathers the latest developments in the field of serial femtosecond crystallography (SFX) at XFEL facilities.

Scientists from the IQFR and University of Greifswald publish in the journal JMB the structure of PnrA, a protein of the ABC-transporter system that binds different types of nucleotides and reveal its involvement in virulence

The atmospheric chemistry of mercury, a global priority pollutant, is key to its transport and deposition to the surface environment. Assessments of its risks to humans and ecosystems rely on an accurate understanding of global mercury cycling.
