COST CM1306 WG2 Training School – Bio-imaging using advanced microscopy methods

23rd-27th April 2018

Centre for Free Electron Laser Science, Hamburg, Germany

This Bio-imaging training school will cover the state of the art in advanced microscopy methods. Specific methods that will be covered include; single particle Cryo-EM, Cryo-electron tomography, X-ray microscopy and tomography, super-resolution microscopy, Single molecule AFM and Light Sheet microscopy. We will cover sample preparation for the different methods and data processing and analysis tools (including the interfacing of high-resolution structural data into lower resolution tomograms and microscopy images). The training school will take the form of a series of lectures plus hands-on tutorials. The training school will also include short presentations by the attendees as well as a project troubleshooting session where the course attendees can present specific challenges in their own projects for advice from the trainers.

The training school will run from lunchtime on Monday 23rd April to lunchtime on Friday 27th April.

Space is limited to 20 attendees. This meeting is now full and registration has closed.
