  • Cryo-EM workshop - Thursday 30 November

    In addition to covering the basics of cryo-EM and what it is useful for, the workshop will have a focus on the practical aspects of how to prepare samples, data collection strategies and data processing for single particle cryoEM as well as covering the basics of tomography. We will also have representatives from each of the major cryoEM centres in Australia who will outline what facilities are currently available and/or will be coming on line in the near future in Australia.
    A detailed program will be available soon.
