CryoEM for macromolecules - from single particles to microcrystals

Comments

Cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM) rivals X-ray crystallography in terms of resolution and can be used to determine atomic structures of macromolecules that are either refractory to crystallization or difficult to crystallize in specific functional states. Electron diffraction can yield structures of proteins even when crystals are smaller than the wavelength of light. The session focuses on examples of both methods. We encourage people working on both single particle cryo-EM of biological macromolecules and electron diffractions of microcrystals to submit their abstract and to attend the Microsymposium entitled “Cryo-EM for macromolecules – from single particles to microcrystals”.
