I2PC belongs to INSTRUCT, the European Strategic Infrastructure Project (ESFRI) in the area of Structural Biology.

I2PC provides support to structural biologists, helping them to maximize the extraction of biological knowledge from their microscopy images.

I2PC also provides support and training in the use of image processing software, at the same time that it develops software and standards oriented towards the standardization, simplification and reliability of the image processing tasks.

Instruct: Focus on Spain

Spain has been in close contact with Instruct since the early stages of the preparatory phase of this Infrastructure. Membership of Instruct with full rights came only with the signing of the International Consortium Agreement at the First Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting in Heidelberg in May 2013. In the relative short period since the signing of the ICA (...) ⇨ Full text
