MicroED is a technique that uses electron diffraction to facilitate structure determination from sub-micron sized crystals, eliminating the need to grow large crystals. MicroED uses equipment and procedures that are standard on many cryoTEM’s, and because of this the technique can be easily adopted in labs and facilities around the world. To facilitate the widespread use of MicroED, Janelia group leader Tamir Gonen is offering this workshop to teach microscopists how to perform the technique and adopt it at their own institutions.
There is no registration fee for participation, and Janelia will provide on-site housing and meals. Attendees are expected to cover their own travel expenses and must be able to stay for the duration.
TO APPLY: Space in this workshop is limited. Those interested must register and submit a brief statement on why they wish to participate, via our online registration system.
