|Community meeting:||Leeds, February 2013|
We are pleased to announce a one day workshop on Relion 2.1 led by developer and structural biologist Dr Rafael Fernandez-Leiro (Spanish National Cancer Centre, Madrid). It will be hosted by University of Bristol and CCPEM on 18th May 2018 and held in the Linux Computer Lab of the Merchant Venturers Bulding, Bristol BS8 1UB, UK.
Full details and registration of interest can be found here:
Schedule is available here.
The workshop will provide hands-on training on all aspects of Relion Image Processing, encompassing all stages of the pipeline, including particle picking, averaging, refinement and classification (see e.g. A pipeline approach to single-particle processing in RELION, R Fernandez-Leiro & S Scheres, doi: 10.1107/S2059798316019276). No previous experience is required, and participants are welcome and encouraged to bring their own data sets.
Registration of interest closes on the 30th March and places will be confirmed shortly afterwards.

We are pleased to announce a two day workshop on the subtomogram averaging software Dynamo led by the developer Daniel Castano-Diez
(University of Basel). It will be hosted by CCP-EM on 28-29th November 2017 and held at the RAL / Diamond campus, Harwell, Oxfordshire, UK. Full details can be found here:
The workshop will provide hands-on training on all practical aspects of subtomogram averaging, encompassing all stages of the pipeline: tomogram visualization and archiving, particle picking techniques for different geometries, averaging, refinement and classification. No previous experience is required, and participants are welcome and encouraged to bring their own data sets.
Registration of interest closes on the 11th October and places will be confirmed shortly afterwards.
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.
This is a pair of workshops aimed at investigating the crossover between emerging EM and MD methods.
Further details are available here.
The third Spring Symposium was 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. Videos of the talks are available at https://sas.stfc.ac.uk/vportal/ (see "CCPEM Symposium" in left-hand list).
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.
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.
Biochemical Society Training Day, Diamond National EM Facility (eBIC), 6 September 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.
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:

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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
