2nd I2PC cryoEM Facilities Meeting

Start Date 26th Jun 2018
End Date 27th Jun 2018
Description I2PC is organising its second Cryo-EM Facilities meeting. The aim is to gather together Cryo-EM Facility managers who want to share their experience, problems and solutions on data handling and processing, using Scipion or not.  

I2PC, as developers of Scipion, has as one of its top priorities the improvement of the functionality that Scipion offers to Cryo-EM Facilities. We will present Scipion and how it is used in several Facilities together with its development Road Map. More importantly, there will be ample time to discuss and present common Facility problems, and hopefully share with others how you are running your Facility.

5th NYU X-Ray Workshop

Start Date 26th Jun 2018
End Date 28th Jun 2018
Description

The aim of this workshop is to promote many aspects of crystallography including diffraction methods, instrumentation and software (with a particular focus on the services and products provided by Bruker). Topics of the workshop will include application of X-ray diffraction in academic research and industry, synchrotron radiaiton, crystallisation methods and structure solution and refinement using TOPAS.

It will also allow networking of researchers in the field, with a confirmed line-up of speakers, and to encourage cooperation between NYU and other organisations.

The number of attendees for certain components of the workshop are limited to below the 50 places available for the general workshop lectures, so early registration is advised.

For more information about registration, please contact Dr. Tony Hu (ch98@nyu.edu).

Summer cryo-EM data processing workshop

Start Date 24th Jun 2018
End Date 28th Jun 2018
Description

Recent technological developments in microscopes, cameras, and computation have led to a “resolution revolution” in the field of cryo-EM, making it possible to determine 3-D structures below a three-angstrom resolution.

The focus of the program — which runs June 24 to June 28 — is to introduce participants to common image processing packages used to analyze cryo-EM data. This is a hands-on opportunity where trainees will work with instructors to learn how to independently use cryo-EM software packages including cisTEM, cryoSPARC, RELION and Rosetta. Prior experience analyzing cryo-EM data will be helpful as the course is focused on providing participants with practical data processing experience.

The workshop is co-sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific, the manufacturer of the four cryo-EM microscopes used at the LSI’s world-class facility. Since its introduction ten years ago, the Thermo Scientific Krios cryo-EM system has proven its ability to visualize three-dimensional structures with near-atomic resolution. This has enabled researchers globally to begin unravelling the complex relationships between structure and function at the molecular and atomic levels.

Instructors of the program include LSI faculty members Michael Cianfrocco, Ph.D., and Melanie Ohi, Ph.D.

Guest lecturers include Xiaochen Bai, UT Southwestern; Alexis Rohou, Genentech; Zev Ripstein from the laboratory of John Rubinstein at the University of Toronto; and Frank Dimaio, University of Washington.
