Podcast Series: 2nd Best Practice in CryoEM Workshop

In October 2018, NeCEN hosted the Instruct 2nd Best Practice in CryoEM Workshop. Supported by Instruct-ULTRA, the aim was to share best practices between cryoEM centres for the delivery of services to academia and companies. Focus was given towards operations, remote control, efficient usage of the machines and live processing in two separate sessions followed by round table discussions. Day one began with four speakers presenting their facilities and how they operate (eBIC, EMBL Heidelberg, Leeds Astbury, Stockholm SciLifeLab). Plenaries followed with presentations on the status of cryoEM in Brazil and at the ESFR in Grenoble, France. Presentations on the second day looked at how four centres approach the issue of image processing, including live processing (IGBMC Strasbourg, CNB Madrid, Tsinghua University China, MPI Gottingen Germany).
