Instruct-ERIC and ARBRE-MOBIEU Workshop:
Sample Quality Optimisation for Cryo-EM Analysis and Optimization of Sample Quality for Cryo-electron Microscopy and Other Structural Techniques
Brno, Czech Republic – February 11-14, 2020
Deadline for applications: November 29, 2019
This workshop provides theoretical and practical training in sample analysis and optimization for structural techniques, in particular Cryo-EM. It is focused on the importance to provide basic protein quality control as well as buffer and storage optimization via using quick and relatively cheap techniques to save precious Cryo-EM time.
Practical part covers sample characterization techniques (dynamic light scattering, differential scanning fluorimetry, circular dichroism and differential scanning calorimetry), basics of Cryo-EM sample preparation and data collection. Trainees are allowed to bring samples for basic analysis and discuss their research with invited speakers and tutors during the voluntary poster section.
