Description

Mornings: lectures

Afternoons: hands-on demonstrations + work on your own sample Goals:

- To identify the best EM method for each student samples/questions;
- To discover which EM techniques that are available at the EMF could forward your research;
- To identify how molecules can be localized in cells or tissues;
- To learn the basics of EM image acquisition, analysis and reconstruction;
- To understand basic SEM and TEM operating principles;
- To gain exposure to various methods of preparing biological samples for EM together with the advantages and disadvantages related to each of these methods

Topics covered:
- TEM, transmission electron microscopy;
- TEM sample preparation: chemical and high-pressure freezing procedures;
- SEM, scanning electron microscopy;
- SEM sample preparation;
- Volume EM: TEM- tomography, Focused Ion Beam-SEM, Array Tomography;
- Ultramicrotomy, resin sections;
- Cryo-ultramicrotomy, the Tokuyasu technique;
- Image processing, volume reconstruction, and modelling

Program

> On Monday morning, each student has 3 minutes (1-2 slides) to explain his needs in electron microscopy in the frame of the PhD work.
