eBIC offers a 3-Tier training program to:
Harwell provides excellent training environment with a critical mass of experts in X-ray, light and electron bio-imaging. It brings together expertise in instrumentation and technology development, high performance computing, software development and implementation of automated workflows, with a strong track record in organizing workshops and symposia. eBIC will leverage the local environment, working with CCP-EM, Diamond, Instruct and other centres, to meet the training demand from a broad range of users.
Upcoming training courses and workshops will be announced on the eBIC website:
Major bottleneck for the majority of new users is lack of knowledge in sample preparation and optimization for CryoEM.
There is severe shortage in expertise for running high-end CryoEM microscopes. Therefore, a major initiative at eBIC is to train BAG users to provide autonomous use of Krios’s during BAG time.
Focused workshops are offered for dissemination, training in software developed in-house/CCP-EM and beyond and new methods. Workshops typically 2-3 day duration covering specific areas in data analysis and model refinement.
Please Note: Users of eBIC are requested to acknowledge DLS and any of its personnel in any published material that results from their use of the Cryo-EM facilities. The following statement should always be included in any publications:
“(We acknowledge) Diamond for access and support of the Cryo-EM facilities at the UK national electron bio-imaging centre (eBIC), (proposal EM####), funded by the Wellcome Trust, MRC and BBSRC.”
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
