Single particle cryoEM of macromolecular complexes

Organiser: Christoph Engel, Michael Pilsl


Place: H 52 / CIP Pool DE.0.135 / Structure Biology lab VKL

CPs: 1.5

Additional notes:

Understanding the functional interplay of cellular macromolecules often relies on detailed 3D structural information. During this intense five-day method course, we will demonstrate the application of single-particle electron cryo-microscopy in theory and practice assisted by a team of international guest speakers who are active developers and application experts in their fields. Starting with laboratory work on different samples, participating PhD students will apply cryo-preparation and EM screening techniques and collect their own data on a high-end Electron  Microscope. Hands-on bioinformatic data processing, particle reconstruction and density interpretation will be followed by model evaluation  and presentation training to conclude the course.

Application deadline: July 15, 2022

The course is limited to 12 participants maximum. Applications will be evaluated and selected by the organizers based on suitability for the course. Selected participants will be contacted by e-mail in the week after the application deadline.

Applicants are required to provide following information:

  • a letter of motivation (max. 1500 characters)
    • include a short abstract of your PhD project
    • include your relevant skills, experience and qualifications which show that you would be suitable for the course
    • explain why you would like to attend the pracitcal course and which benefits you would derive from it
  • two-page CV
