Date: 20-Jul-2018 to 24-Jul-2018

Contact: Lori Passmore

The American Crystallographic Association 68th Annual Meeting will be held from 20th – 24th July 2018 in Toronto, Canada.

 Wah Chiu, Lori Passmore, and John Rubinstein (U Toronto) are co-organizing a full day workshop on July 20 entitled “CryoEM – A guide to high-resolution structure determination.” The aim of the workshop is to provide a detailed overview of specimen preparation, image processing and building/refinement of atomic models, with focus on high-resolution single particle cryo-EM. Aspects of image processing and modelling will be hands-on with state-the-art programs used by workshop students to process sample datasets.

On July 22 there will be a full day of presentations from CryoEM scientists with morning and afternoon scientific sessions chaired by Wah Chiu (Stanford U) and Lori Passmore (MRC-LMB). Invited speakers include: Joachim Frank (Columbia University) (tentative) Nieng Yang (Princeton U) Maofu Liao (Harvard U) Kiyoshi Nagai (MRC LMB, Cambridge) Xiaodong Zhang (Imperial College, London) Gabe Lander (Scripps research Institute).
