2nd Instruct Workshop on cryoEM best practices

NeCEN is organising the second Instruct workshop on cryoEM best practices on 15-16 Oct 2018

      

Following on the success of the first Instruct Workshop on cryoEM best practices held in Harwell in May 2017 (link), NeCEN is organising the second version that will take place in Leiden, Netherlands on 15-16 Oct 2018.


The workshop is intended to promote sharing of experiences by EM user facilities and is open to EM facility scientists, manager and computing specialists both from Academia and Industry (max 30 participants). Presentations by some of the large cryoEM facilities will take place and some focus will be given towards operations, remote control, efficient usage of the machines and live processing in two separate sessions followed by round tables discussions.

On the second day, a tour of Thermo Fisher Nanoport and Factory in Eindhoven, where Krios microscopes are assembled, is organised.


Speakers:

Daniel Clare (eBIC, Harwell, UK) at Instruct Centre Diamond Light Source

Marta Carroni (SciLifeLab, Stockholm, Sweden)

Rebecca Thompson (Astbury Centre, Leeds, UK)

Wim Hagen (EMBL Heidelberg, Germany)

Pablo Conesa (CNB-CSIC, Madrid, Spain) at Instruct Centre for Computational Biology

Rodrigo Portugal (LNNano, Campinas, Brazil)

Julio Ortiz (Integrated Structural Biology, IGBMC, Illkrich) at Instruct Centre France 1

Xueming Li (Tsinghua University, Beijing, China)

Dimitry Tegunov (MPI-BPC, Gottingen, Germany)

Christoph Mueller-Dieckmann (ESRF, Grenoble, France)


Registration to the workshop is now open
