The ARC Centre of Excellence for Advanced Molecular Imaging and EMBL Australia announce a workshop on cryo-EM and single-particle analysis to be held at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, 1-3 February 2017, preceding the LorneProteins meeting. The workshop will include hands-on practicals in addition to problem-solving-oriented talks from leading software developers in the field, including
Steven Ludtke, lead developer of the popular, all-purpose EMAN2 suite of programs
Hans Elmlund, lead developer of the SIMPLE/PRIME suite of programs for ab intio 3D reconstruction
Jose Miguel de la Rosa Trevin and Roberto Marabini, developers of the integrative software tool Scipion
The workshop will cover all computational aspects of single-particle analysis, including 2D analysis, 3D starting model generation, heterogeneity analysis, and high-resolution refinement. You will be introduced to and get the opportunity to try out the latest developments in the field.
We will accept 40 students. To apply go to
The registration fee is 300 AUD and once your registration is confirmed you will be sent an invoice. Confirmation letters and invoices will be sent by Dec 1 2016.
