A 2.5 day practical winter workshop on sample preparation and negative staining for cryo-EM single particle data collection has been jointly organised by the ESRF, IBS, ILL and the EMBL Grenoble. This is the third of a series of practical hands-on workshops started in 2018. This workshop is aimed at PhDs, PostDocs and scientists new to the field of single particle cryo-EM and will be held at the European Synchrotron, EMBL Grenoble and the Institut de Biologie Structurale (IBS) in Grenoble, France from November 5th to 7th, 2019. During the course, participants will learn theoretical and practical aspects of sample preparation for single particle cryo-EM including prior quality control by negative staining.
There is no registration fee and meals and accommodation during the workshop will be provided free of charge. However, participants are expected to arrange and pay for their own travel to/from Grenoble. A maximum of 12 participants will be selected and we will accept a number of participants’ samples to be tested during the workshop. In the case that you plan to bring your own sample, please clearly mention this in your cover letter, also indicating the importance of the project.
The deadline is 29 September 29 2019, and successful candidates will be informed during the first week after the deadline.
