1st CEITEC Symposium on Recent Advances in Cryo-Electron Microscopy
Cryo-electron Microscopy and Tomography CEITEC Masaryk University has organized a one day symposium on recent developments in the field of cryo-electron microscopy on 18thApril 2018.
The symposium featured eight excellent scientific presentations divided into two sections focused on utilization of cryo-electron tomography and single particle analysis for structural and cellular biology.
Prof. Juergen Plitzko from Max-Planck Institute for Biochemistry in Martinsried delivered keynote lecture on the latest technological developments in preparation of thin cellular lamellas from vitrified cells for using focused ion beam micromachining within cryo-electron tomography session. Further, correlative approaches which include cryo-electron tomography have been discussed within this session by other speakers and lecture on approach to achieve atomic resolution with cryo-electron tomography has been delivered by Dr. Florian Schur (IST Austria). Prof. Stefan Raunser (Max-Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology, Dortmund) has presented structures bacterial toxin complexes that permeate the membrane and translocate actin-attacking enzymes into the target cell with session focussing on single particle data analysis approaches. Apart from the lectures focusing of high-resolution virus structures and data analysis, methodological presentation on utilization of Volta phase plate for single particle analysis of small proteins and protein complexes was delivered by Maryam Khoshouei (MPI Martinsried).
