Workshop on Image Processing with 2dx

August 19-25, 2012, in Basel, Switzerland.

We invite for applications to participate in the fourth international workshop on electron crystallography of membrane proteins. This workshop will focus on data processing, with emphasis on 3D reconstructions from images of tilted 2D crystals. 

The hand-on workshop on the processing of images from cryo-electron microscopy of 2D crystals of membrane proteins (electron crystallography) will provide the theoretical background and practical applications in advanced image processing algorithms. The workshop will use the 2dx software system,  which is based on the MRC programs.  Theoretical morning lectures will be followed by practical exercises in the afternoon. Although we will provide iMacs for every participant, you are encouraged to bring your own laptop (Linux or OSX), or at least a portable hard-drive (USB2.0), onto which we will install the relevant software systems and test data during the workshop.  You are also welcome to bring your own dataset. 

Speakers and instructors include:
Marcel Arheit, C-CINA, Biozentrum, University of Basel, Switzerland.
Daniel Castano-Diez, C-CINA, Biozentrum, University of Basel, Switzerland
Anchi Cheng, Scripps, CA, USA.
Hans Hebert, Karolinska, Stockholm, Sweden.
Cristina Paulino, MPI for Biophysics, Frankfurt, Germany.
Sebastian Scherer, C-CINA, Biozentrum, University of Basel, Switzerland
