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, Prague-West) 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 (total investments will exceed 750 mil. CZK by the end of 2015), 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 as National Affiliated Center is a part of the ESFRI projects INSTRUCT.
