The second installment of the MicroED workshop will be held at Janelia Research Campus (Ashburn, VA) November 13-16, 2016, hosted by Tamir Gonen.

MicroED is a cryo-EM method that uses electron diffraction to facilitate structure determination from sub-micron sized 3D crystals of biological material.  MicroED uses equipment and procedures that are standard on many cryo-EM:s, and because of this the technique can be easily adopted in labs and facilities around the world.  To encourage the widespread use of MicroED we are offering this workshop to teach microscopists how to perform the technique and adopt it at their own institutions.  The first MicroED workshop was held in February of 2016 and was heavily oversubscribed.  For this reason we are offering a second workshop. 

There is no registration fee for participation, and Janelia will provide on-site housing and meals.  Attendees are expected to cover their own travel expenses and must be able to stay for the duration.

Space in the course is limited.  The application deadline is August 1, 2016 (11:59 PM EDT).  For more details and to apply, visit https://www.janelia.org/you-janelia/conferences/microed-workshop-1.
