The curriculum is divided in two parts:

1. Online lectures about the theory of cryo-EM single particle analysis as well as practical demonstrations by Grant Jensen (CalTech) and Matthijn Vos (ex. Thermo Fisher Scientific). The school participants have to follow the online course and take the self-evaluation test before coming to NeCEN for practical hands-on training.

2. Hands-on practicals on the different aspects taught online.

  • Cryo-EM sample freezing on a vitrobot
  • Cryo-EM grids clipping and loading for autoloader systems
  • Cryo-EM sample screening
  • Titan Krios alignments
  • Automated Single Particle Data Acquisition with EPU
  • Some basics on image processing is optional and can be tuned to each participant interest
