Objectives of the course:
Single-particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) is a structure determination technique that is currently gaining popularity in structural biology. Through the availability of powerful computers, novel transmission electron microscopes and especially modern electron detectors the method now reach near atomic resolution that competes with traditional methods of X-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance. Cryo-EM further allows the study of sample heterogeneity and dynamics, and cryo-electron tomography (ET) allows single particles to be observed in their native environment inside cells. This course aims at providing an overview of current cryo-EM research and method development as well as giving participants practical experience with software tools for cryo-EM data analysis.
