This is a perfect opportunity to learn about cutting-edge magnetic resonance in biological systems in times where conferences have been cancelled around the globe.
The series takes place weekly on Thursdays and features two cutting-edge 30 minute presentations.
The series has support of the ICMRBS (http://www.icmrbs.org) and EUROMAR (https://www.euromar2020.org) and is organized by Loren Andreas, Stefan Glöggler, Christian Griesinger, Mei Hong, Oscar Millet, Arthur Palmer and Markus Zweckstetter.
Upgrade of the workflow for cryo-electron tomography and microscopy
The CIISB Cryo-electron microscopy core facility at CEITEC Masaryk University is expanding its services in the sample preparation for electron microscopy. The facility has recently acquired high-pressure freezer Leica EM ICE for vitrification of bulky biological specimen (up to 200 mm thickness). In addition, the freeze-substitution unit Leica EM AFS2 for resin embedding of the high-pressure frozen samples and the ultramicrotom Leica EM UC7 with the adapter for cryo-ultramicrotomy were purchased in order to provide the facility users with the complete workflow for preparation of thin section samples for both room-temperature electron microscopy and cryo-electron microscopy.
