[ccp4bb] 2018 Winter School of Cryo-EM Workshop at Arizona State University (ASU)

We are pleased to announce the Cryo-EM Workshop of the High-Resolution TEM Winter School, which will be held on January 3-5, 2018 at Arizona State University (ASU) Tempe campus.  The HRTEM Winter School at ASU has a long history in educating and training TEM scientists, and we have been expanding our interests and courses to the biological applications, especially the cryo-EM methods.  Last year was our first annual cryo-EM workshop, which brought success in promoting biological cryo-EM and training more researchers into the field. 

The goal of the Cryo-EM Workshop is to introduce the concepts and applications of the biological cryo-EM.  We will have two guest speakers coming to join our workshop: Dr. Nikolaus Grigorieff (Howard Hughes Medical Institute) and Dr. James Evans (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory).  Participants will learn the complete workflow and advanced techniques used for biological cryo-EM through lectures, demos, and hands-on experiments.  No previous experience is required.  Also, it will be a great opportunity for the participants to learn the cryo-EM principles while working along with their samples. Therefore, this year we are welcoming to receive the proposals from who are interested in bringing their samples and processing their data on site. 

More information can be found in https://le-csss.asu.edu/node/131.  Winter is the wonderful season to visit Pheonix area, and we are looking forward to welcoming you.  Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need more information.
