EMBL Course: Cryo-Electron Microscopy and 3D Image Processing
23 Aug 2020 - 31 Aug 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Cryo-EM combined with image processing is currently undergoing what has been referred to as a “resolution revolution”, making it one of the most powerful techniques to address this challenge. It also has unique capabilities to obtain structural information in situ within complex environments, and to deal with heterogeneous samples. The methods are complex and under constant development, so in depth, advanced training of users is essential to ensure future users can adapt new technologies to expand into new areas and solve new biological problems. This course provides the theoretical and practical training covering the full breadth of cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) techniques in order develop novel image processing approaches.

EMBL Course: Gene Expression at Spatial Resolution
31 Aug 2020 - 04 Sep 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
This course will introduce participants to a new generation of a spatially resolved transcriptomics assay provided by 10x Genomics. Through the combination of state-of-the-art sequencing technology and high-resolution microscopy, 10x Genomics is enabling researchers to study gene expression of cells within their morphological context of an intact tissue section. Through both theoretical sessions, as well as extensive hands-on practical work, the participants will learn the entire workflow of sample preparation including cryosectioning of fresh-frozen tissue samples, optimisation of tissue fixation and permeabilisation, high-resolution microscopy and sequencing library preparation. Utilising the 10x Genomics Loupe Browser pipeline, the participants will also have hands-on training of spatial transcriptomics data analysis.

ICON Europe 2020 — International Conference On Nanoscopy
28 Sep 2020 - 01 Oct 2020 • Jena, Germany
Organizer:
Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology Jena
Abstract:
The last two decades have seen the advent of a variety of super-resolution imaging techniques that provide spatial resolution well below the diffraction limit, approaching virtually molecular detail. Their widespread application is currently transforming biological research enabling new and exciting views on the structural organisation of cells and the dynamics of biomolecular assemblies on different timescales. These revolutionary developments come with novel requirements for fluorescent probes, labelling techniques, and data interpretation strategies. Researchers from across the scientific spectrum are involved in designing improved tools and solving previously intractable problems using super-resolution techniques. We invite you to attend the ‘International Conference On Nanoscopy 2020’, which will uniquely and exclusively focus on super-resolution microscopy and its biological application. Held in Jena, Germany in the summer of 2020, it will bring together an international group of experts to discuss the latest advances and future directions in the field.
