S²C² Modeling Workshop - September 8-10, 2021 (virtual)

S2C2 CryoEM Map Modeling and Validation Workshop September 8-10, 2021 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM (PDT)(Virtual)

We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a 3-day virtual workshop on CryoEM Map Modeling and Validation September 8 - 10, 2021. The expert speakers will address the latest developments in their tools for building, refining and/or validating models along with the cryoEM maps at near-atomic and/or atomic resolution. Participants will have the opportunity to raise specific questions or include case examples to have the individual speakers address at the meeting.

Please see below for the registration link and further information.
