Did you miss the last EMBL Insight Lecture by Dr. Christiane Schaffitzel on 31st January? Or do you want to go over selected parts of the lecture again?
We are pleased to announce that the video of Christiane’s talk “From Code to Function – Observing Protein Synthesis Through the Electron Microscope” is now available on EMBLog, where it can be streamed from at any time you wish.
In her engaging presentation, Christiane first explores the processes of protein biosynthesis. After an introduction to electron microscopy as a technique to analyse structures of biological macromolecules, Christiane goes on to discuss how her research group uses cryo-electron microscopy to study the structures of ribosomes. In the remaining part of the talk, Christiane focuses on the process of protein targeting and shares her insight into how synthesised proteins reach their final location in or outside the cell.
The lecture on the 31st January was attended by students from several German schools at EMBL Heidelberg and followed online by a dozen schools from across Europe. During the two question sessions, participants on-site as well as via the web engaged in lively discussion with Christiane about her research work.
