EMBO practical course: Electron Tomography in Life Science

lectron Kevin Knoops DMV tomography is a 3D-imaging technique with a resolution range bridging the gap between optical imaging and single particles 3DEM techniques.

This six-day course, 18-23 June 2012, will be given at the Leiden University Medical Center, the Netherlands and will cover the major aspects of:

theoretical aspects
specimen preparation
data acquisition
alignment and reconstruction
tomogram visualization
sub-tomogram averaging

We invite PhD students and post-doctoral fellows with a life science background interested in 3D imaging of biological specimens, such as tissue, cells, organelles and macromolecular complexes to participate in the course.
