Sixth Chinese Workshop for Structural Biologists

Updated: 2021-03-31

In order to promote the application of 3DEM in solving the structures of sophisticated bio-molecular complexes and to provide opportunities for non-EM structural biologists -- especially Chinese protein crystallographers and NMR spectroscopists -- to learn this state-of-the-art technique, the Chinese 3DEM community in association with Thermo Fisher Scientific (USA), is organizing a local workshop in China.

The workshop will focus on the 3DEM single particle analysis (SPA) technique and teach participants from theory to practice, and will also introduce cryo-electron tomography (Cryo-ET) and micro-electron diffraction (Micro-ED) techniques.

It will be held in Beijing, China from May 15 - 20, 2021 and lectures will be followed by group discussions (two full days) and practice sessions (two full days). Both the Institute of Biophysics of CAS and Tsinghua University will share their EM facilities for this workshop.

Due to limited resources the maximum number of participants will be restricted to 64. All participants can join both the lecture and practice sessions. The deadline for applications is April 12, and the list of participants will be announced on April 21.
