Class size is limited to 20 participants who must attend all 5 days to be considered for the workshop.
Meeting Format:
This comprehensive course will cover batch data acquisition using SerialEM, batch tomogram reconstruction using IMOD, and sub-tomogram averaging using PEET. Participants will work through sample data in the new RML Computer Learning Center and time will be allotted to go over participants’ own problematic data. Previous experience with tomographic reconstruction in IMOD is required. Experience with PEET is preferred and highly recommended.
