Some of you may be getting this message more than once and for that I 

The program has now been  completed for this years Gordon Conference on 3-D 
Electron Microscopy of Macromolecules that will be held June 22-26, 2003 at 
Colby Sawyer College,  New London, New Hampshire. The program can be viewed 
at  This years program emphasizes 
the use of 3-D  EM in bridging subcellular details with atomic level 
information obtained by crystallography and NMR.  To foster collaborations 
towards this goal a number of outside speakers have been added to the 
program.  The Sunday night program features two such speakers.  Dr. Stephen 
Burley, Chief Scientific Officer, Structural GenomiX, Inc. and Principal 
Investigator, New York-SGX Structural Genomics Research Consortium, will 
give the conference the biotechnology perspective on high throughput 
structure determination and the impact that structural genomics will have 
on studies of large macromolecular assemblies.  Dr. Charles Brooks III will 
speak on theoretical tools for obtaining functional insight from low 
resolution EM structures using initial structures obtained by X-ray 
crystallography and NMR.

The rest of the program highlights work on high resolution crystallographic 
studies of membrane proteins, studies using single particle reconstruction 
methods, new reconstruction tools, new instrumentation for high resolution 
structure determination, new tools for building and assessing models of 
large assemblies, and  electron tomography.  Poster sessions are held every 
afternoon, and two evening sessions are set aside for presentation of 
selected  posters judged at the meeting to be on the cutting edge of 
molecular microscopy.

Attendance at the meeting is by application only.  An application to attend 
the conference can be  obtained at the following

Acceptance is unrelated to the order in which applications are received, 
provided that they are received before the conference is closed.  Places at 
the conference will be available for advanced  graduate  students, 
postdocs, junior and senior investigators, both within and without the 
field, and industrial representatives.  The conference is typically 
oversubscribed so if you want to attend, get your application in.  The 
acceptance process does not begin until the second week in March, and 
should conclude by the second week in April.

Please pass this information on to anyone you think will be interested in 

I look forward to seeing you at what promises to be an exciting week of 
cutting edge microscopy and structure determination.
