Classes, workshops and short courses

Electron microscopy in combination with image analysis is increasingly powerful in producing 3D structures of individual molecules, macromolecular complexes and cellular components that are unapproachable by other methods. Our courses are focused on the concepts and theories behind cryoelectron microscopy (cryoEM).

All courses will be held at the New York Structural Biology Center at 89 Convent Ave (133rd St).
