3rd CEITEC Symposium on Recent Advances in Cryo-EM

About event

The 3rd symposium on recent advances in cryo-EM hosted by CEITEC Masaryk University features presentations from academic and industrial leaders who develop electron cryo-microscopy technology or apply it to describe fundamental cellular processes. The speakers will present recent methodological developments in electron microscopy data acquisition and analysis approaches, and how cryo-EM helps to increase our understanding of protein translation or structure and function of viruses.
