Single Particle Cryo-EM School in Brazil :   18 - 30 August  2005 

The Santa Rita Single Particle School will be an intensive 12 days 
hands-on course for learning the processing of single-particle cryo EM 
data from A to Z. The attendees can be those who are entirely new to the 
approach, or those for who the technique is of growing importance and 
who wish to acquire an in-depth understanding of the technique. The 
course covers all issues from data collection, through to the 
interpretation of the cryo-EM maps and the fitting of known X-ray 

 The students are expected to bring along a modern notebook computer 
onto which all necessary software will be downloaded. Most processing 
will take place in the context of the IMAGIC software system but other 
software will be available. Various sample cryo-EM data sets will be 
distributed for processing during the course. Data sets will range from 
entirely asymmetric ribosome images to those of icosahedral virus 
capsids. Students may bring along their own data sets for 

The conference site is located close to the beautiful old city of Santa 
Rita do Passa Quatro, in the interior of the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil. 
Santa Rita, although in the tropics, has a pleasant ~20º centigrade 
average temperature in August (750 m above sea level).  Hotel Fazenda 
Glória has optimal facilities for a school of this size.
