Description

Organizer :  Bruno M. Humbel, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology

Venue : Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology

Aim :

This course on cryo-electron microscopy is aimed at beginners. Experienced researchers will provide an overview of the current state of the art of this Nobel Prize winning technologies and share their experiences in demonstrations and hands-on practice.

It is expected that the delegates familiarised themselves with the on-line training program of ThermoFisher: https://em-learning.com/
