October 10-11 2019, Biomedicum lecture theatre, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm
The 2nd CryoNet Annual Symposium will highlight the latest discoveries in protein-nucleic acid complexes along with a view to the future of cryo-EM. Alongside presentations on important biological results will be exciting methodological advances emphasizing that cryo-EM is still in a major growth phase.
Students and postdocs are encouraged to apply to give talks and poster presentations
CryoNet is funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and the Novo Nordisk Foundation.
