CCP-EM training courses

Combining EM and MD Workshop Leeds 13-14th July 2017

This is a pair of workshops aimed at investigating the crossover between emerging EM and MD methods.

Further details are available here.

CCP-EM Icknield Model Building Workship 5-7th April 2017

This course is for researchers with high resolution EM maps ready for / in the process of modelling building and refinement. This three day course will host some of the leading software developers and provide ample contact time to allow delegates to discuss their data in detail alongside traditional lectures and tutorials.

Further details are available here.

CCP-EM Spring Symposium III 24-26th April 2017

The symposium will be held again at RAL/DLS, this year in conjunction with the opening of the DLS Electron Bio-Imaging Centre (eBIC). Further details are available on the symposium page.

EMBO practical course on image processing for cryo-electron microscopy 5-15th September 2017

The next EMBO practical course on image processing for cryo-electron microscopy will be held in Birkbeck College, ISMB, London. Further details are available on the course page.

Relion training course

A one day RELION workshop led by its developer Sjors Scheres and hosted by CCP-EM and the Astbury Biostructure Laboratory (University of Leeds, UK) on 19th September 2016. Full details can be found here.

Advanced Data Collection for High Resolution cryoEM: How to make the most of your National Facility Visit

Biochemical Society Training Day, Diamond National EM Facility (eBIC), 6 September 2016

Talks from the day are available, and further details of the meeting are on the Biochemical Society events pages.

Spring Symposium 2016

The second CCP-EM Spring Symposium is scheduled for 9-10th May 2016. Registration is now closed and the meeting is full. Further details for delegates will appear here.

Instruct course: From 2D images to 3D structures: A practical course on Electron Microscopy Single Particle Analysis

The course will be held in Madrid, May 17 - 20, 2016. The course will run for four days, from Tuesday morning to Friday lunch, at the CNB-CSIC in Madrid. Tutors will address the complete image processing workflow typical for macromolecular structural determination, from processing the raw images taken on the electron microscope to the interpretation of the derived 3D volumetric structure in terms of atomistic models. We are targeting a maximum of 20 attendees, and we have 10 accommodation grants for students from Instruct countries (https://www.structuralbiology.eu/resources/countries ).

The instructor team will be:

The I2PC Madrid team
CCPEM: Martyn Winn, Tom Burnley, Agnel Praveen Joseph
EBI, PDB, EMDB: Ardan Patwardhan

You can find more information on the course at http://i2pc.cnb.csic.es/hands-on-course-may-2016.html

Icknield Workshop on Model Building and Refinement for High Resolution EM Maps

This course is aimed at structural biologists with high resolution EM maps ready for / in the process of modelling, building and refinement. This three day course will host some of the leading software developers and provide ample contact time to allow delegates to discuss their data in detail alongside traditional lectures and tutorials.

The course will be held at the RAL / Diamond campus, Harwell, UK on 2nd - 4th March 2016.

Talks and tutorials will be made available.

Subtomogram averaging with Dynamo

CCP-EM hosted a 3-day workshop on the Dynamo software, 14th - 16th Dec 2015 on the Harwell campus, UK. The tutors were Daniel Castano-Diez, Misha Kudryashev, Sai Li and Juha Huiskonen.

Further details are available on the course page.

CCP-EM Spring symposium 2015

CCP-EM are proud to announce the inaugural 'CCP-EM Spring Symposium'. This two day conference was held at the site of the new National UK Electron Bio-Imaging Facility on the Harwell Campus, Oxfordshire on the 28-29th May 2015. The theme of the conference is a celebration of the upcoming facility, the initial alpha release of the CCP-EM software suite, as well as the exciting developments in electron microscopy and tomography.

Further details are available on the conference page.

Computational Issues for an EM Lab

Working Group 2 of CCP-EM are planning a short workshop on the computational issues of running an EM lab, which will take place at the end of the Spring Symposium. The workshop will cover hardware requirements, software infrastructure, and logistics. As part of the planning, there is a survey on computational needs, which we'd like as many people (at all levels) to fill out.

Computational tools for combining atomic and volume data

This Instruct/CCPEM/CCP4 course was aimed at both electron microscopists wishing to interpret their volume models, and scientists from MX/NMR looking to understand the increasing amount of cryoEM data available. The tools covered included Chimera, DockEM, ShapEM, FlexEM, Refmac, Coot, SMaSB/PDBeShape, and tools from the EM Data Bank.
Course material is available on a separate page.

Relion training

The first one-day training course on Relion was practical course on image processing for cryo-electron microscopy held at Diamond Light Source on Thursday 16th October 2014. It focussed on both theoretical and practical aspects of the RELION software package and was led by the principle developer Dr Sjors Scheres (MRC-LMB), with help from Felix Weis (MRC-LMB) and the local CCP-EM team. A repeat of this course was held on 8th December 2014. We hope to run this course a third time in 2015.

An introduction to regularised likelihood and Relion can be found in lecture 6 of the recent MRC-LMB course on EM.

CCP-EM community meeting

Our first public event was a 1-day discussion workshop to get community input into what CCP-EM does, and gather requirements. Neil Ranson and Arwen Pearson kindly agreed to host the meeting at Leeds, on the Thursday 7th February 2013.

The meeting has now been held, with 32 attendees contributing to some constructive discussions. Some documents from the meeting:
