In the last week of September, our 2nd year PhD student Priyanka attended the PhD course on “Single particle cryo-EM of macromolecular complexes” organized by the Graduate Research Academy RNA Biology in University of Regensburg.

The five day workshop began with the lectures on the basic principles of the electron microscope, protein purification and sample preparation. The workshop was conducted by the members of the Engel lab and a team of 12 people were trained during the course. As the course progressed, the participants had the hands on training on preparing the various kinds of samples using  the Vitrobot and also had the chance to screen their grids on the in-house Jeol microscope!
