4th Brazil School
for Single Particle Cryo-EM
After three successful schools in this series, we are happy to announce the Fourth Brazil School for Single Particle Cryo-EM.
This school will take place prior to the International Microscopy Congress 17 which will be held in Rio de Janeiro
The single-particle school is an intensive hands-on course/workshop, in which theory and practice are tightly intertwined. The spectrum of topics covered suits attendees that are entirely new to the field as well as those for whom the technique is of growing importance and who wish to acquire an in-depth understanding of the field. Topics range from data collection over reconstruction techniques to the interpretation of fitted X-ray structures into cryo-EM maps. The final days of the conference will be devoted to more advanced topics such as dealing with heterogeneous data sets ("4D" cryo electron microscopy) and resolution refinement. The attendees are expected to bring along a modern notebook computer onto which all necessary software will be installed. Most processing will take place in the context of the IMAGIC software system but other software will be available. Cryo-EM data sets will be distributed for processing during the course. Students may bring along their own data sets for processing/discussion.The conference site is located at Hotel Fazenda Villa-Forte.
