The Czech Infrastructure for Integrative Structural Biology (CIISB) is a distributed national infrastructure, which consists of two nodes, one represented by CEITEC (Central European Institute of Technology, Brno) and second by BIOCEV (Biotechnology and Biomedicine Centre of the Academy of Sciences and Charles University, Vestec near Prague). CIISB offers access to 10 core facilities; five of them are part of the Centre of Structural Biology and one of the Mendel Centre of Genomics and Proteomics of Plants of CEITEC Masaryk University and four of the Centre of Molecular Structure of the Institute of Biotechnology AS CR in the BIOCEV Centre.
All CIISB core facilities are in the full operational phase. Projects as OP RDI (Start-up) supported the construction phase, and the built capacities were made available by both CIISB nodes in the form of Open Access to internal and external users. In its construction phase, CIISB (2011-2015) was the Associated National Center of the pan-European research infrastructure INSTRUCT. In 2016, following the completion, putting into operation, and subsequent international evaluation, CIISB became a fully-fledged Instruct-CZ Centre for this distributed infrastructure.
