Sessions will cover:

• Electron microscopy
• Electron tomography
• Image processing basics
• Image processing and 3-D reconstruction (hands-on session)
• Negative stain and cryo-EM grid preparation
• Cryo-EM on the Arctica and the Krios with a Volta phase plate

The course is designed to engage students and promote discussion between fellow participants and course instructors. In addition to talks and hands-on lessons,  there will be social events that will provide opportunities to network.

By the end of the week, students will have a greater appreciation of what can be achieved through the application of cryo-EM.
