The goal of the workshop is to teach users the best practices in sample preparation for cryoEM imaging. The workshop will be principally hands-on with students preparing vitrified samples on the latest generation of plunge-freezing devices. They will then have the opportunity to subsequently screen these samples with the eBIC Titan Krios and Talos Arctica electron microscopes.
This workshop will be geared toward novices with the only requirement being that the student, and/or postdoc, shows they plan to use cryoEM as part of their current research. The workshop aims to equip participants with the necessary skill set to further develop their cryoEM expertise at their home laboratories. Several biological test samples will be provided allowing participants hands on experience with a variety of samples.
