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
