S²C² CryoEM CCP-EM Workshop - Nov. 10-13, 2020 (Zoom only Participation)

Registration for the November Workshop is now closed

S2C2 CryoEM CCP-EM Modeling Workshop

Stanford-SLAC Cryo-EM Center (S2C2) will offer a modeling workshop held via Zoom Webinar between November 10-13, 2020 from 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM (PDT) daily, with the exception of Thursday, November 12, 2020 will end at 2:30 PM.  This workshop will give participants an introduction to atomic model building into cryo-EM maps using the tools available in the CCP-EM software suite.  Our guest trainers for this event are: Dr. Colin Palmer, CCP-EM, STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory;  Dr. Tom Burnley, CCP-EM, STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory; Dr. Kevin Cowtan, Dept. of Chemistry, University of York; Dr. Paul Emsley, MRC-LMB, Cambridge; Asst. Prof. Arjen Jakobi, Dept. of Bionanoscience, TU Delft, Dr. Agnel Praveen Joseph, CCP-EM; Dr. Robert Nicholls, MRC-LMB, Cambridge; Prof. Maya Topf, CCP-EM, ISMB Birkbeck, University of London, and Dr. Andrea Thorn, University of Würzburg; Dr. Ardan Patwardhan, EMBL-EBI, Cambridge.

Topics to be covered:

  • Automated de novo model building using Buccaneer and Nautilus
  • Flexible fitting with Flex-EM
  • Model refinement using Refmac5
  • Local map sharpening with LocScale
  • Interactive model building in Coot
  • Atomic model validation

Those attendees wishing to participate in the practical will be receiving software and downloading instructions from our group to test the software/computer capabilities for any technical issues one week ahead of the actual meeting dates.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
