We are happy to announce the second edition of the “Prato cryoEM course” from 31st to 13th of April 2019.

The course aims at PhD students and researchers with little experience in cryoEM or that are planning to use cryoEM to bring their projects to the next level.

It will comprise a series of lectures covering all steps of Single-particle cryoEM and Subtomogram Averaging (from sample preparation to data collection and image processing). Practical sessions will give the students the opportunity to perform image processing for both single particle and subtomogram averaging and test multiple software packages.
