The Brazil School

NOTE: The 6th Brazil School took place 14-26 August 2014.

After five successful schools in this series, the 6th Brazil School for Single Particle Cryo-EM will take place
                                 14 - 26 August 2014.

This single-particle data processing 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 new to the field as well as those for whom the technique is already of growing importance in their research and who wish to acquire an in-depth understanding of the methodology. Topics range from data collection and three-dimensional reconstruction techniques to the final interpretation of the cryo-EM maps by (flexible) fitting of X-ray structures. The last days of the meeting will be devoted to advanced topics such as dealing with heterogeneous data sets ("4D" cryo electron microscopy) and high-resolution refinements.

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 4D software system but other software packages such as Frealign will also be used. Cryo-EM data sets will be distributed for processing during the course. The participants may bring their own data sets for processing and discussion.

The school will this time take place in Socorro, Sao Paulo.
