Cryo-EM Data Processing Workshop

Date: May 6-9, 2019

Registration is now closed

The 4-day satellite Cryo-EM Data Processing Workshop (May 6-9, 2019) will focus on EMAN2, SPHIRE, CHIMERA, COOT and PHENIX. This marks the rebirth of a long series of EMAN2 workshops previously hosted by the NCMI in Houston over the last 20 years and this year will be hosted by the SCSB at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB), Galveston.
The workshop will spend one day on tomography/subtomogram averaging, two days on single particle analysis, and one day on model building and refinement, and will include a mix of hands-on tutorials and theory. This will include a tutorial on the new tomography → high resolution subtomogram averaging pipeline, single particle reconstruction in EMAN2 and SPHIRE, model building, flexible fitting and visualization.
Confirmed workshop speakers include

Computer and software requirements - Note that all workshop tutorial sessions will require the user have a laptop computer with sufficient capabilities to participate. We recommend a laptop with 4 cores at 2.0+ Ghz, a 25+ GB of free storage, and 16 GB of RAM. Partial participation will be possible with lower specifications. With a large number of participants sharing network access, you should not rely on remote connections to more powerful machines at your home institution to participate.
