Werner Kuhlbrandt, MPI Frankfurt (EMBO Keynote Lecture)

Nektarios Tavernarakis, IMBB Heraklion

Stefan Raunser, MPI Dortmund

Susan Lea, Oxford

Friedrich Forster, Utrecht

Preliminary Programme

Symposium 23 April

For the first day of the program (23 Apr), there will be a symposium where major aspects of the cryoEM field will be covered. The symposium will be open for the local community and the workshop participants. Leading researchers in the cryoEM field will highlight state-of-the-art developments in cryoEM SPA, tomography, molecular modelling, showcasing outstanding recent applications. There will be a poster session for registered participants and selected poster presenters will get the opportunity for a 10min talk during the last session of the symposium. “The EMBO Keynote Lecture” will be held by Werner Kühlbrandt.

Practicals 24-27 Apr

The course is aimed at PhDs, PostDocs as well as young faculty members and applicants from industry new to the field of cryoEM. A series of morning lectures will teach the necessary basic theoretical principles and practical aspects for macro molecular structure determination by cryo EM. The afternoon sessions will provide in-depth hands-on practice on single particle analysis, subtomogram averaging and molecular modelling into cryoEM maps. The practicals will cover the software packages SPHIRE, pyTOM, Coot/REFMAC and PHENIX.
