Cryo-Electron Microscopy


Tuesday, June 6, 2017 | 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Add to Calendar

Collaborative Workshop Chaired by Neal Waxham, Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy with speakers Irina Serysheva – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, William Dowhan – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Jun Liu – Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and William Margolin – Microbiology and Molecular Medicine.

Cryo-electron microscopy is transforming the field of structural biology. Over the past 10 years, advances in specimen preparation, microscopes, detectors and image processing have led to a revolution in determining the structure of molecules in isolation and in their cellular context. In addition to the preservation of molecules in nearly native state, the resolution now achievable is measured in angstroms, rivaling methods such as NMR and crystallography.

This workshop brings together UTHealth investigators who have applied this cutting-edge technology to understand the structure and function of macromolecules and macromolecular assemblies that underlie fundamental biological processes.
