Workshop on cryo-EM and single-particle analysis

The ARC Centre of Excellence in Advanced Molecular Imaging and EMBL Australia announce a workshop on cryo-EM and single-particle analysis to be held at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, 1 – 3 February 2017, preceding the Lorne Conference on Protein Structure and Function.

The workshop will include hands-on practicals as well as addition to problem solving oriented talks from leading software developers in the field, including:

  • Steven Ludtke, lead developer of the popular, all-purpose EMAN2 suite of programs
  • Hans Elmlund, lead developer of the SIMPLE/PRIME suite of programs for ab initio 3D reconstruction
  • Jose Miguel de la Rosa Trevin and Roberto Marabini, developers of the integrative software tool Scipion

The workshop will cover all computational aspects of single-particle analysis, including 2D analysis, 3D starting model generation, heterogeneity analysis and high-resolution refinement. Attendees will be introduced to and have the opportunity to try out the latest developments in the field.

The registration fee is AUD$300. Successful applicants will be invoiced when registration is confirmed. (Confirmation letters and invoices will be sent by Dec 1 2016.)

Looking forward to see you in Melbourne!
