The Czech Infrastructure for Integrative Structural Biology (CIISB) is a distributed infrastructure of the core facilities and central laboratories of CEITEC (Central European Institute of Technology, Brno) and BIOCEV (Biotechnology and Biomedicine Centre, Vestec) providing expertise and access to technologies used for integrative approaches to structural analysis of biologically important cellular components and macromolecules - proteins, nucleic acids, and their complexes. CIISB, equipped with the cutting-edge technologies, will offer access to the equipment and expertise in the following fields: high-field NMR spectroscopy; high throughput crystallization of biological macromolecules; X-ray diffraction techniques; Bio-SAXS measurements; AFM imaging; characterization of proteins, nucleic acids and complexes by biophysical methods including microcalorimetry, dynamic light scattering, and surface plasmon resonance; high-end cryo-electron microscopy and tomography allowing studies of cellular structures, organelles, and biomacromolecular complexes by 3D imaging; protein expression in eukaryotic cells; high-end mass spectrometry characterization of biomacromolecules; determination of protein post-translational modifications; MS-based peptide mapping/sequencing; high throughput sequencing and proteomic services. CIISB infrastructure aims to provide a high quality open access services in provision of methods and techniques on a level of national and trans-national importance. CIISB is a part of the ESFRI project INSTRUCT-ERIC.
