Event Name

3rd iteration of Cryo-EM workshop

Start Date 2nd Oct 2018
End Date 4th Oct 2018
Description

The goal of the workshop is to teach users the best practices in sample preparation for cryo-EM imaging. The workshop will be principally hands-on with students preparing vitrified samples on the latest generation of plunge-freezing devices.  They will then have the opportunity to subsequently screen these samples with the eBIC Titan Krios and Talos Arctica electron microscopes.

Topics

Introductory Lectures:

  • An introduction to the basics of cryo-EM and cryo-ET
  • The complete guide to sample vitrification 

Hands-on sessions:

  • Sample preparation for single particle cryo-EM
  • Sample screening at eBIC and an introduction to data collection on Titan Krios and Talos Arctica
