About CryoEM 101 – Cryo EM 101

About CryoEM 101

Cryo-EM has emerged as a powerful tool for high-resolution structure determination. To aid the training efforts of newcomers to the field, we are creating a media-rich curriculum to augment users’ own hands-on training. The training material will contain videos, animations, and interactive simulations that cover the major components of the cryo-EM workflow.

CryoEM 101 is made possible in part by NIH Common Fund CryoEM Initiative.
