CryoEM Workshop

The CryoEM workshop will introduce the concepts and applications of CryoEM. Through lectures, demos, and hands-on experiences, participants will learn CryoEM sample preparation, TEM operation, data collection, and analysis. This is an introductory workshop for those interested in using CryoEM and prior experience is not necessary; however, a basic understanding of structural biology and/or TEM is recommended. Topics will include:

  • Negative stain EM
  • CryoEM sample prep/ screening
  • CryoEM Data Collection
  • CryoEM data Processing
  • Data reduction and motion correction
  • Image processing
  • Structure validation and interpretation

CryoEM Workshop will run January 3 - 5, 2018.  School participants are responsible for their own lodging arrangements.  Since January is a popular month for visiting the Phoenix area, it is advisable to reserve accommodations by early November.
