A 3-day Data Processing on Cryo-EM applied to macromolecular complexes: single particle analysis and atomic modelling Workshop will be organized in Oeiras.
The aim of this workshop is to introduce all the steps for image processing and atomic modelling.
The course will be taught using Scipion a software platform that integrates many image processing packages especifically designed for Electron Microscopy Single Particle Analysis. The platform facilitates the interoperability between the different software packages by converting the data and metadata where necessary. Scipion is particularly well suited for working in High Performance Computers and stream processing at the point of acquisition in EM facilities. Scipion keeps track of all the steps performed as well as their parameters. In this way, reproducibility of the results is guaranteed. Scipion is now extended to allow atomic modelling of the 3D map. In this way, the benefits of traceability and interoperability of Scipion has also been brought to the domain of atomic modelling.
