On alternating Tuesdays at 3:30 PM Eastern Time, we host Roundtables, virtual gatherings of small peer-groups, providing an open forum to discuss both specific or general questions on a focused topic in cryoEM. We will start with a 5-10 minute intro given by our staff and then open up the floor for Q&A/discussion. The schedule of topics for our 2021 series is below. If you have a particular interest in a topic not listed, contact us at nccattraining [at] nysbc.org and we will hold additional sessions for topics in high demand. Roundtables will last ~1 hour.
