The Second  Brazil School for Single Particle Cryo Electron Microscopy - 
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 structures.

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 electron images asymmetric ribosome images to 
those of
icosahedral virus capsids.  Model data sets with also be distributed.  
Students may bring
along their own data sets for processing/discussion.

The conference site is located close to the city of Araraquara, in the 
interior of the state of
Sao Paulo, Brazil.  Araraquara, although in the tropics, has a pleasant 
~20º centigrade
average temperature in August (500 m above sea level).  Hotel Fazenda 
Salto Grande
has optimal facilities for a school of this size.
