Biological systems

Since February 2010, the group has a new FEG electron cryo-microscope (POLARA FEI 300 kV). Because of the installation of the state of the art camera with a direct electron detection (K2 summit) in 2014, this microscope allows collecting images of biological structures to quasi-atomic resolutions. The group also has a new Tecnai12 microscope (FEI) which can be used to observe biological macromolecular complexes by negative-stain. The third electron microscope is a Tecnai F20 cryomicroscope (FEI FEG 200 kV) used routinely to find optimal freezing conditions of the biological specimen. The microscopes are accessible to people outside IBS upon request.

Several biological topics are developed within the team :
- Structure of Virus
- Microtubules and associated proteins
- 3D structure of macromolecular assemblies
