The Boulder Laboratory for 3-D Electron Microscopy of Cells will be
holding a tomography software workshop March 22-25, 2010. The
workshop is designed to teach investigators the IMOD software package
developed in our lab. The four-day course will include lectures by
Dr. David Mastronarde introducing participants to tilt-series
acquisition, alignment methods, and dual-axis tomography.
Demonstrations on specimen preparation and preparing grids for
tomography will be presented.  Participants will have hands-on
experience with data acquisition, and will learn the IMOD software
package using sample data sets provided by the lab as well as data
acquired in practice sessions. Trouble shooting strategies for
problematic data sets and tips on modeling tomographic data will also
be presented.  Special topics including cryotomography and large area
reconstruction will also be covered.

The workshop is limited to 16 participants. More than one applicant
per lab will be considered only if there is space remaining. There is
no fee for academic participants in the workshop, but participants
need to cover travel and lodging expenses.  Applications are due by
Feb. 15, 2010. Send application to:
