Cryo-EM image processing

National course open for PhD students, postdocs, researchers and other employees in need of cryo-EM data analyses skills within all Swedish universities.

The course is organized by the SciLifeLab Cryo-EM core facility.

Responsible teachers: Marta Carroni,


This course provides a theoretical and practical introduction to cryo-EM image processing. It consists of morning lectures and computational image processing practicals in the afternoon. It focuses mainly on single particle cryo-EM data analysis and will not cover cell tomography.  The course is aimed to PhD student or researchers in general that already have cryo-EM data or are planning a cryo-EM single particle study in the near future. Upon completion of the course, attentive participants will be able to plan cryo-EM experiments and run most common cryo-EM image analyses from single particles to 3D classification and refinement.
