Accessible and robust methods for preparing high-yield monolayer graphene grids for cryo-EM could significantly alleviate issues with grid preparation. The graphene grid making approach employed and published recently (Han, Fan et al. 2020) may increase particle concentration over grid holes without compromising high resolution structural information.
Authors of (Han, Fan et al., 2020) from Princeton University, in conjunction with the NCCAT and NRAMM, will lead a hands-on workshop aimed at teaching attendees how they make graphene grids for cryo-EM. With this knowledge, researchers will be able to prepare graphene grids in a typical biology lab using commercially available graphene sheets.
More details at the NCCAT website.
This workshop is offered at NO COST, but limited to 20 attendees.
Application deadline March 6 @5pm.
