New Instruments For NCCAT

In September, NYSBC placed orders for three new Krios G3i-Cryo transmission electron microscopes.  These microscopes will be part of the new National Center for CryoEM Access and Training, which was funded by [...]

New Construction Underway

We have started construction of a new 5000SQF space that will be the new home of National Center for CryoEM Access and Training which was funded by the NIH Common Fund Transformative High Resolution [...]

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017 was awarded to Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson "for developing cryo-electron microscopy for the high-resolution structure determination of biomolecules in solution". http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/chemistry/laureates/2017/press.html https://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/chemistry/laureates/2017/press.pdf [...]

New Krios Microscopes

The Krios#1 microscope has been operational despite the construction, and has been producing high quality data more or less continuously. The Krios#2 microscope is now in open beta. The Krios#3 is built, and is currently in a testing [...]

Appion Part 2 – 3D Reconstruction – October 9, 2018

This Appion Part 2 Workshop is a follow-on to the Part 1 workshop and focuses on 3D initial models and refinement.  

Appion Part 1: Basics and 2D Analysis

The Appion Part 1 Workshop provides hands-on training for the Appion single-particle data processing workflow. Appion is a “pipeline” for processing and analysis of EM images; it is integrated with Leginon data [...]

Appion Developers Workshop (The Hack-a-Thon)

Every year our Appion team meets to review the software used and make improvements to the platform based on user feedback.    

LEGINON WORKSHOP: Krios Data Collection at SEMC (How To Get the Most Out Of Your Krios Session)

Leginon is a system designed for automated collection of images from a transmission electron microscope. This workshop is intended for active Krios users to more effectively and efficiently use the platform for [...]

SEMC Winter EM course – EM challenges and new frontiers part IV

On April 30th, Oli Clarke concluded our EM challenges and new frontiers section of the course with a discussion on how to interpret near atomic/moderate resolution maps and use these maps to [...]

SEMC Winter EM course – EM challenges and new frontiers part III

On April 23rd, Yong Zi Tan and Ed Eng continued our EM challenges and new frontiers section of the course with a discussion on how to deal with moderate-low resolution EM maps [...]

SEMC Winter EM course – EM challenges and new frontiers part II

On April 16th, Cathy Lawson continued our EM challenges and new frontiers section of the course with a discussion on EMDataBank: Structure Data Archiving, Validation Challenges.   For more information see: SEMC [...]

SEMC Winter EM course – EM challenges and new frontiers part I

On April 9th, Tom Walz began our EM challenges and new frontiers section of the course with a discussion on validation. There are many pitfalls in cryoEM with applying the technique without [...]

SEMC Winter EM course – EM crystallography part III

On April 4th, Bill Rice concluded our EM crystallography section of the course with a discussion on microED (electron diffraction). This technique has been used to break the 1Å barrier, and has [...]

SEMC Winter EM course – EM crystallography part II

On April 2nd, Hernando Sosa continued our EM crystallography section of the course by discussing helical reconstruction and the many applications still routinely used in both cytoskeletal and membrane protein fields. Hernando [...]
