NOTE: We have experienced a very strong interest in the 7th Brazil 
school since its first announcement. The school is already likely to be 
oversubscribed so don't delay your registration!

_Second announcement:_


11-23 August 2016 (São Paulo, Brazil) (www.single-particles.org/school).

Our single-particle school is a unique intensive 12-day hands-on 
course/workshop, in which theory and practice are tightly intertwined. 
The understanding of the principles of cryo-EM data processing stands 
central in this event and a few pioneers will explain the approaches to 
the participants to the level where they can apply it themselves. The 
spectrum of topics covered suits attendees who are new to the field as 
well as those for whom the cryo-EM technique is of growing importance 
and who wish to acquire an in-depth understanding of its fundamental 

The final days of the meeting will be devoted to advanced topics such as 
high-resolution refinements and the processing of heterogeneous data 
sets ("4D cryo–EM”). Advanced topics will include:

1)Optimizing data collection with direct electrons detectors and 
exploiting movies.

2)Full data set automatic CTF correction.

3)Correction of anisotropic magnification.

4)Reaching atomic resolution without reference bias: 
alignment-by-classification (ABC) refinement procedures.

5)Unbiased "Random Startup" of 3D and 4D reconstructions.

6)4D refinement procedures for high resolution results using IMAGIC-4D 
and/or Frealign.

7)Fitting and refining atomic coordinates in high-resolution cryo-EM 
maps (~4Å or better) using programs like REFMAC and Coot.

8)Validation of the final results.

Kind regards,

Marin van Heel

I receive many emails per day and, although I try,
there is no guarantee that I will actually read each incoming email.
