The overall goal of Academia Sinica Cryo-EM Facility (ASCEM) is to increase the energy of fundamental life science research of Taiwan and Academia Sinica via introduction of cutting-edge instruments and to assist analyzing protein structure and cellular ultrastructure for further solutions of bio-technology issues and serious disease problems.

This promotional workshop, will be held on Thursday, 28 March 2024, aims to provide a concise and comprehensive perspective on the cryo-electron microscope (cryo-EM) technology and its applications in biological researches. Not only from a scientific point of view, we also will present it in practice. The topics range from cryo-sample preparation, the most critical step to obtain a high-resolution cryoEM structure, EM operations and data collection to data processing. The lectures will be presented in Chinese (全程以中文演講及授課).

In order to ensure a better practical learning experience, the afternoon hands-on session only enroll 15 participants this time. We encourage those with a strong motivation in applying cryo-EM for biological field to seize the opportunity to get up close and personal with ASCEM managers. Learning, experience sharing, or technical consultation and so on are all welcome.
