Event Name

MicroED workshop (second installment of the)

Start Date 13th Nov 2016
End Date 16th Nov 2016

MicroED is a cryo-EM method that uses electron diffraction to facilitate structure determination from sub-micron sized 3D crystals of biological material.  MicroED uses equipment and procedures that are standard on many cryo-EM:s, and because of this the technique can be easily adopted in labs and facilities around the world.  To encourage the widespread use of MicroED we are offering this workshop to teach microscopists how to perform the technique and adopt it at their own institutions.  The first MicroED workshop was held in February of 2016 and was heavily oversubscribed.  For this reason we are offering a second workshop.

There is no registration fee for participation, and Janelia will provide on-site housing and meals.  Attendees are expected to cover their own travel expenses and must be able to stay for the duration.

Space in the course is limited.  The application deadline is August 1, 2016 (11:59 PM EDT)

Location Janelia Research Campus (Ashburn, VA)
