Accessible and robust methods for preparing high-yield monolayer graphene grids for cryo-EM could significantly alleviate issues with grid preparation. The graphene grid making approach employed and published recently (Han, Fan et al. 2020) may increase particle concentration over grid holes without compromising high resolution structural information.
Authors of (Han, Fan et al., 2020) from Rice and Princeton University, in conjunction with the NCCAT and NRAMM, will lead a hands-on workshop aimed at teaching attendees how they make graphene grids for cryo-EM. With this knowledge, researchers will be able to prepare graphene grids in a typical biology lab using commercially available graphene sheets.
This workshop is offered at NO COST, but limited to 12 attendees.
The application deadline was July 26, 2021 at 5pm ET. For further inquires please email the NCCAT User Office.
