Published results using Scipion
We are glad to see the first three publications using Scipion!
The Yaser Hasem group in Strasbourg reported the structure of a mammalian 48S initiation complex at 5.8 Å resolution, showing the relocation of subunits eIF3i and eIF3g to the 40S intersubunit face on the GTPase binding site, at the late stage in initiation.
In collaboration with Roman Koning in Leiden, the asymmetric virion structure of bacteriophage MS2 was determined and it was found that, in situ, the viral RNA genome can form a branched network of stem-loops that almost all allocate near the capsid inner surface, while predominantly binding to coat protein dimers that are located in one-half of the capsid.
Also from Roman Koning group the Structure of AP205 (single RNA stranded phage) Coat Protein is been reconstructed to 6.0-Å.
New protocols integrated
At the end of July, we received the visit of Hans Elmlund, the main developer of Simple. We have created a set of protocols for most of the Simple2.0 programs. We are doing more testing and plan to release them in the next Scipion version.
Two new protocols were added: MotionCor2 for movie processing on multi-GPU (from D. Agard lab), estimation/correction of magnification distortion (from N. Grigorieff’s lab). They are available in devel version of Scipion. See the details here
