Image Processing for Cryo-electron Microscopy course

Date: 05-Sep-2017 to 15-Sep-2017

It is a pleasure to announce that the next EMBO practical course on image processing for cryo-electron microscopy is taking place in Birkbeck College, ISMB, London . This 10 day course will be held in September (5 - 15), 2017.

You can find announcement on the event at the following sites:

Birkbeck College

Deadline for applications: Monday 15 May 2017

The aim of the course is to teach the basic principles and practical aspects of image processing to bioscientists and structural biologists wishing to determine macromolecular structures by cryo electron microscopy (EM). The course will concentrate on processing of single particle images, and will be aimed at advanced PhD students and postdocs working on projects producing cryo EM images for structural analysis. Familiarity with UNIX would be an advantage.

The first half of the day will include two 50-minutes lectures and discussions. A 3-hour practical would take place in the afternoon, with discussion time at the end. After dinner there will be invited speaker lectures or student presentations.

Applications are invited from PhD students and researchers in EM. Please apply now via the page on EMBO site. On this pages you will find leading scientists in the field who will give insightful lectures.

Applications should include:

A Curriculum vitae; a publication list; a short description of your current work and future plans; an explanation of why attendance at the course would further the applicant's own research; and a letter of recommendation from the applicant's supervisor.
