About the School

The course participants will learn the processing from the first beginning of data collection, through pre-processing, automatic particle picking, alignments, 3D reconstruction, "4D" image analyis of data-sets with mixed populations up to the interpretation of the data and fitting of known X-ray structures.

The course participants are expected to bring along a modern notebook computer (click here for notebook requirements) onto which all necessary software will be installed. Most data processing will take place in the context of the IMAGIC software package but other supporting software will be available. Sample cryo-EM data sets will be distributed for processing during the course. Data sets will range from images of the entirely asymmetric ribosome to those of icosahedral virus capsids. The course participants may bring along their own data sets for processing/discussion.

The instructors are all experienced users and programmers of 3D single-particle software.

The lecture room with LCD projector will be available, as well as some smaller meeting rooms. A computer cluster will be made available for parallel processing.

The school will be limited to 25 participants. Course participants are expected to give a little talk presenting their current work and project.

The official language of the course is English.
