i) To impart training in state-of-the-art techniques for structure determination using cryoelectron microscopy.
ii) Introduction to the best sample preparation and data collection strategies (including hands-on experience of sample preparation and demonstration of remote data collection).
iii) Training in basic principles of structure determination using cryoEM, including single particle analysis, helical reconstruction and tomography applications.
iv) Hands-on practical training in the latest software suites for image processing of electron micrographs for high resolution structure determination and tomography application.
v) Exposure to the latest scientific advances in the field through research talks from eminent researchers from across the globe.
vi) Developing problem solving skills through brainstorming sessions, panel discussions and independent practice sessions on participant's data in the presence of experts in the field.
vii) Networking with experts, software developers, and researchers for gaining exposure to the global status of the research in cryoEM and learn of not only the latest but also upcoming developments.
