Event Name

CCPBioSim-EM Workshop. Computation for Biomolecular Cryo-Electron Microscopy and Tomography

Start Date 14th Jul 2017
End Date
Description Structural characterisation of proteins and protein complexes by cryo-EM and cryo-ET is now providing access to a wide range of macromolecular assemblies that were inaccessible by X-ray crystallography or NMR. Although EM analysis can provide information on different conformational states, it is still an averaging technique and therefore highly dynamic regions can be difficult to resolve. This workshop will explore the emerging computational techniques for achieving biological understanding from cryo-EM/ET images, and discuss areas most in need of further development. Confirmed speakers include:

Christiane Berger-Schaffitzel, University of Bristol
Christian Blau (Lindahl Group, Stockholm University)
Max Bonomi (Vendruscolo Group), University of Cambridge
Tom Burnley, CCP-EM / STFC
Jose-Maria Carazo, National Center for Biotechnology, Spain
