Subtomogram averaging with Dynamo

CCP-EM are pleased to announce a three day workshop on the subtomogram averaging software Dynamo led by the developers Daniel Castano-Diez (Max Planck Institute) and Misha Kudryashev (University of Basel / Max Planck), and assisted by Sai Li (University of Oxford). It will be held on 14-16th December 2015 at Diamond House, Harwell, Oxfordshire, UK.

There is no registration fee and CCP-EM will provide food and accommodation however applicants will have to cover their own travel arrangements and costs.


There are 25 places on the course. In the first instance, registration is to express interest in the course. If the course is oversubscribed, we will select students in order to maximise the impact.

Please register here. Registration of interest closes on 1st October. Confirmation of places will be sent shortly after the close of registration.

Dynamo is a software environment for subtomogram averaging of cryo-EM data. Our goal is to provide a reliable tool for all kind of users: newcomers needing a mild learning curve, advanced users with lots of data to process as fast as possible, and developers that need a flexible framework to test new ideas and algorithms.

A more detailed description of the package can be found in the publication:
Dynamo: A flexible, user-friendly development tool for subtomogram averaging of cryo-EM data in high-performance computing environments.
