Mini-Symposium June 02, 2017 - Cryogenic Transmission Electron Microscopy of Biological and Synthetic Supramolecular Architectures

News from May 09, 2017

Core Facility BioSupraMol and Research Center of Electron Microscopy (Freie Universität Berlin) cordially invite you to our Talos Arctica inauguration Mini-Symposium on topics of Cryogenic Transmission Electron Microscopy, which will take place on June 02, 2017.

For the understanding of complex molecular systems in chemistry, biology and pharmacy, the analysis of the structure of new supramolecular and biomacromolecular architectures is of great importance. The Core Facility BioSupraMol, which was established a few years ago by the Freie Universität Berlin with grant support from the German Science Foundation (DFG), provides a powerful center focused on high-resolution analytical techniques including electron microscopy.

The launch of a new state-of-the-art cryo-transmission electron microscope with automated data acquisition and novel electron detector technology is a good reason to review the rapid developments over the past few years in the field of cryogenic transmission electron microscopy.
Proven experts will present an overview of the developments of the technique from the very beginnings to the present day. The speakers will cover the characterization of biological and synthetic supramolecular assemblies by the use of state-of-the-art image analysis and 3D reconstruction techniques up to near atomic resolution.
