Major technical advances has enabled cryo-EM to become a mainstream technique in visualization of macromolecules, which provides the most definitive way to describe their mechanisms of action. The first international cryo-EM symposium in Sweden will take place in Stockholm (May 8) and Umeå (May 9), and present the developments that are shaping this scientific breakthrough. Topics covered include central discoveries in cryo-EM, the most recent methodological developments and applications to central biological questions.
